It's a hike, it's a poker game!  It's both! 

Come out and explore Gunpowder Falls State Park and test your luck at poker at the same time.

We will hike the 4 mile loop which is a scenic wooded hike finishing along the gunpowder river.  This hike is easy, with a few minor uphills at the beginning.  It's sneaker-worthy or you can wear hiking boots/shoes.  Your dogs on leashes are welcome to join us, and they don't even have to buy a poker hand!

This is how things work: 

There is a minimum buy in of one hand to join the hike.  One hand costs $5, and there is no limit to how many hands you can buy.  Please bring cash for your payment.  You get 3 cards upon departure - and when we finish, you get 2 more cards to complete your hand.  The person with the best hand splits the pot with MOC.  MOC's take will go to paying for this new website that you see.  It's that easy! 

After, we can grab drinks at Gunpowder Lodge if people are interested.

Required Items to Bring:

Sneakers or hiking shoes
$5 for your hand
