Maryland - Potomac State Forest

This event is hosted by Girls Who Hike Ambassador Maryland Charissa Hipp and takes us to the western corner of our state. It includes a hike through a hemlock-laurel canyon, stream crossings on footbridges and a waterfall. Does it get any better than that?! The first 10 attendees to arrive will receive a special Girls Who Hike giveaway. Be sure to pack plenty of water and snacks for this hike!

Hey ladies! I’m looking forward to this hike in Western Maryland! I will update you with more information leading up to the hike via this Facebook Event so keep an eye out for posts. Leave the guys and kids at home for this hike. I don't see any mention on the DNR website that pets are allowed here.
