Hikin’: Join us for a hike through the Gunpowder Falls State Park along Gunpowder River, ending up at Woodhall Winery. This hike will be approximately 4 miles in length, mostly flat but with 3-4 reasonable hills. The pace will be leisurely, and we expect to complete the trail in ~3 hours. Suggest poles and an extra pair of shoes for the car, as it can be muddy.
Winin’: For those interested, we will visit Woodhall Winery - a mere 5-minute walk from our cars - for a $15 wine/chocolate-tasting afterwards, for ~2 hours. Let us know if you'll join us, so we can give Woodhall a head-count for the chocolates. Bring a sandwich lunch and $15 in cash for the tasting. For more information about the winery, http://www.woodhallwinecellars.com/, 410-357-8644.
Bathrooms: There are no bathrooms at the trailhead, and the winery (with its bathrooms) won’t be open when we arrive. So if you think you’ll need to use the bathroom before the hike, do so at the last gas station as you drive in. That gas station is on your left, immediately after you exit off I-83 onto MD-137. That station has just a singleton bathroom, which tends to have a long line - so allow a good 10-15 minutes to use it. And don’t forget to buy water or something, so the owners don’t get mad at us for just using their bathroom.
|How to Get There:|

|Carpool Directions:||Log in for directions|
Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $33.60 (calculated at total miles (84) * $0.400, effective Wednesday, January 23, 2019). This is based on the current gas, maintenance, and other costs of $0.400 per mile as stated by the IRS & Cars.com. This should be divided by the total number of people in the vehicle (incl driver).|
For example: With 4 people in the vehicle, the expense per person on this trip would be $8.40. Alternately your carpool driver may choose to split the maintenance cost plus the actual gas cost among all in the vehicle. Your carpool driver will confirm exactly how much money they require to cover costs. Please split the actual cost among all people in the vehicle.
Additional advice: The cost of your trip is up to your driver. Your cost should not be greater than what is listed above, unless there is extenuating circumstances. If you want to be sure about the cost of the trip, check with your driver before you get into the vehicle. If you are the driver of the vehicle, this is a guideline to what you charge and not a rule.
Weather: If there is heavy rain or significant snow (or lots of pre-existing snow cover), we will cancel the event.
Cancellations: If you sign up and then change your mind, no worries; please just cancel your RSVP by Thursday night, so that waitlisted folks can get on the trip quickly enough to make their weekend plans.
Dogs: Dogs are welcome, as long as they are friendly towards people and other dogs. If you want to go to the winery afterwards, check with the winery (Woodhall, 410-357-8644) to make sure it’s OK to bring them into the tasting room. They’ve been dog-friendly in the past, but I don’t know if they are expecting other dogs there that day or not.
