Summer Hike – Seneca Creek State Park @ Seneca Creek State Park
Aug 22 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Pack 468 families,

I hope this message finds everyone well. I want to invite everyone to our annual summer hike, which will take place next Saturday, August 22nd at 1:00 PM at Seneca Creek State Park (https://dnr.maryland.gov/publiclands/pages/central/seneca.aspx). We will be hiking the Lakeshore Trail, which circles Clopper Lake. The park entrance is located at 11950 Clopper Rd, Gaithersburg, MD 20878. Please note that according to their website, there is a park entrance fee of $3 per person on weekends. We will meet at the parking lot near the boat center (circled in purple on the attached map).

We are asking that families who join the hike please bring and wear masks and we will be sure to socially distance as we hike the trail. The loop trail is about 3.5 miles with some moderate elevation changes at times. Families have the option of doing the entire loop, or turning around after the first mile for an out-and-back distance of 2 miles. Please don’t forget your 6 essentials of hiking (First Aid Kit, Water Bottle, Flashlight, Trail Food, Sun Protection/Bug Spray, Whistle).

This is an optional pack activity and given the ever evolving COVID-19 situation, if you feel uncomfortable meeting up as a group, please feel free to create your own hike. Looking forward to seeing some of you next weekend!
