Mountain Hiking at Cunningham Falls State Park!

Date: Saturday, October 29th (Rides Depart From Multiple Locations Near the Hopkins Campuses at 12:30 pm)

Register Here by Thursday, October 27th.

Surrounded by the beautiful Catoctin Mountains, Cunningham Falls State Park is home to Maryland’s highest cascading waterfall. Choose one of two trails to the falls: one is shorter and relatively level; the other is a bit longer and more rugged. In the late afternoon, shadows from surrounding trees cast their brilliant color onto the lake. We'll stop for dinner on the return trip at the Golden Corral Restaurant in Frederick, MD featuring a buffet menu of over 100 items (approx. $15.00). Rides depart at 12:30 pm from multiple locations close to the Hopkins campuses. We'll to Baltimore around 8:30 pm.
