The Around Town Series - an open ended series of events (hikes, cycling) around the DC/Baltimore area that should not be more than an hour's drive for anyone. These events should hopefully expose you to the outdoor resources that are in our area and available for your enjoyment.

Event #2: Patapsco State Park.

Come enjoy an 8 mile loop through the rolling hills of Patapsco State Park. There are some long ascents and winding trails in this park that is just outside the loop around the city of Baltimore. We will take a mild to fast pace to give everyone the workout of their choice.

Keep in mind when signing up that the weather may still be really cold in February.

Afterward, we will head to a local restaurant to enjoy some good food and to warm up.
