Hey ladies! I’m looking forward to this spring hike at Maryland Heights! I will update you with more information leading up to the hike via this Facebook Event so keep an eye out for posts, especially pertaining to parking for this event. It’s National Park Week but there is a fee if you enter on the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park side (only fee free day is 4/21), but expect it to be busy! Leave the guys and kids at home for this “Solo Sunday” hike.
