Come join the MOC for a hike at Susquehanna State Park.

This is tentatively planned as a roughly six mile circuit hike, though the final route selected may be anywhere from 5.5 to 7.5 miles. This will be mostly hilly terrain (none of the hills will be steep) with a couple of easy stream crossings. We will start out on the Land of Promise Trail and then catch Rocky Run Trail to Farm Road trail, and finally returning along the Susquehanna River.

No lunch break is planned during the hike. If there is sufficient interest afterward, we may head into nearby Havre de Grace for a bite at one of the local eateries. This is optional; feel free to brown-bag or simply head home after the hike if preferred. However, be aware that this would be a LATE lunch (after 2 PM), so at a minimum bring some trail snacks to tide you over.

There won’t be an official carpool, but for those interested we can set up something informal.

Required Items to Bring:
Hiking boots or sturdy sneakers
Minimum 1.5 liters water
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
First Aid Kit
$$ for possible post-hike lunch
