Trail Map & Guide
Parking: Washington Monument State Park (start), Wolfsville Road (end)

This hike requires two cars. Leave one at Wolfsville Road, and start the hike at Washington Monument State Park. Hike northbound.

Today we had mixed terrain. Some easy stuff and a very rocky section that reminded me of Pennsylvania. We couldn't climb up the Washington Monument because it had been struck by lightning last year and suffered structural damage. We are continuing to see a lot of backpackers on the trail.

We skipped the side trail to Annapolis Rocks

Black Rock Cliffs

This is feeling like Pennsylvania - very rocky.
