Saturday, February 24, 8:00 AM
Hike: Pass Mountain, Shenandoah National Park, VA

PATC Map 10 / VA Bus

$26 + park fee/pass. Long hike: 10 mi., 2000 ft. ascent/descent. Moderate hike: 6 mi, 1300 ft. ascent/descent.

Experience Shenandoah's infinite winter charms in our first hike of the New Year - a traverse up to Pass Mountain in the park's Northern district. Our outing beings on Rt. 211 with all hikers ascending the Pass Mountain trail as it heads north through a forest green with mountain laurel and white pine, then west towards the center of the park. Moderate hikers will go as far as the Pass Mountain AT hut. Long hikers will continue past the hut, then head north on the Appalachian Trail to reach the top of Pass mountain. For a little more winter view of the forest, long hikers will continue about a mile further north on the AT towards Beahms gap. Return for all hikers is to reverse course to return to the bus.

Saturday, March 3, 8:00 AM
Hike: Baltimore City Walk, MD

Baltimore Map / MD Bus

$26. Hike up to 10 miles.

Chances are you’ve passed through Baltimore on I-95, and maybe even been a tourist along Inner Harbor. But here’s a chance to get to know the real “Charm City”—up close and personal. We’ll explore the city by foot, following a route that takes us from historic Fort McHenry along the waterfront to Locust Point, Federal Hill (photo above), Camden Yards, Edgar Allen Poe's grave, and the elegant Beaux Arts architecture of Mt. Vernon Place. Then it’s on to the Inner Harbor, Fells Point, and Canton.

Leaders: Al Havinga and Susan Lewis
