Trail Hikes


Please Note: The Trail Hike program is currently on hold as COVID-19 restrictions evolve. We know this is a disappointment to many of our regular hikers but the safety of our volunteer leaders, staff and participants is our first priority. Details on adjustments to the timeframe for series completions will come out when we are able to return to the Trail as a group.

Many hiking trails are still open but please use caution and follow local guidelines when heading out. Please see the main HCRP page for local details. For current information regarding the Appalachian Trail, visit the National Park Service site at and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy at

Get outdoors and set foot on the Appalachian Trail, Catoctin Trail and more with the HCRP Trail Hike series!  Make new friends and leave the driving to us; experienced leaders interpret points of interest along the way. Most hikes between 6-9 miles. Detailed information will be emailed to participants within a week of the Trail Hike date. Under 16 must be accompanied by a participating adult. Call Matt Medicus, 410-313-1769 for more information.

Trail Hikes are led by dedicated HCRP volunteer Trail Hike Leaders Mary Boeckmann, John Breivogel, Henry Ellis, John Singleton and Sandy Stromer!  Interested in joining their esteemed ranks as a Trail Hike leader?  Call Matt Medicus at 410-313-1769 to find out how.
