Join us for a camping weekend in beautiful Green Ridge State Forest in western Maryland. We'll be camping in one of the park's group camp sites in the northern part of the forest, which is close to the junction of several trails and not far from the Potomac River.

We'll be doing a loop hike on Saturday along the Long Pond hiking trail and Fifteen Mile Creek. On Sunday, we'll do another loop hike along the C&O Canal and the Potomac.

To keep club labor and costs down, we'll be providing food only for dinner on Saturday night. Please bring fixings for your own breakfasts and lunches. Included in the club price, however, will be communal water and firewood as well.
