From the Orange Grove Area parking lot near the Swinging Bridge, we will venture to an often overlooked hiking mecca between Washington and Baltimore for our last hike of the year. We’ll visit three areas of Patapsco Valley State Park, a Maryland gem along the Patapsco River that offers an unbelievable 200 miles of trails. All hikers will follow a circuit in the Orange Grove and Avalon Areas via the Cascade Falls, Morning Choice, Rockburn Branch, Valley View and Ridge Trails. The hike involves a couple of stream crossings, so hiking poles are advised.
