We are deep into the beautiful spring season and its officially hiking season again. Luckily, Maryland offers some of the best hiking trails for all levels and we would love to share some of our favorites with you.
The Appalachian trail is a beautiful 40-mile route along the backbone of South Mountain. The trail is popular for 3-4 day hikes where you can opt to camp outside in designated camping areas. However, there are plenty of day-trip hike routes available as well. The Appalachian National Scenic Trail is the longest hiking-only footpath in the world, traveling through 14 states.
This registered natural landmark is full of wildlife and beautiful views. Its a small mountain and park 10-miles south of Frederick, MD and its a perfect place to go for a hike and picnic before or after at the park. It’s a privately maintained attraction but it is open to all and free of charge. We also guarantee that catching the sunset at Sugarloaf Mountain will 100% be insta-worthy.
Gillis Falls Park
Gillis Falls trail at Gillis Falls Park is short in length and recommended for beginner hikers. This trail is perfect to walk with dogs or just for an easy stroll that won’t leave you sore the next day. It’s a beautiful forested route featuring tons of natural shade and beautiful flowers.
Cascade Falls Loop Trail
Cascade Falls Loop is an absolute hidden gem. The trail is surrounded by residential neighborhoods but it is the perfect trail for a moderate hike/ run. The trail is well marked and there is even a small waterfall for you to enjoy. This trail is part of the Patapsco Valley State Park and the full trail is 3 miles long.
