Tired of shopping? Need to get moving? Take a relaxing hike with the MOC.

This is a nice easy hike with a few (small) rolling bumps in the terrain. We will walk along a scenic section of the Middle Pautexent River, through meadows, and vegetation. A total of about 4 miles in 2 hours. After the hike there is an optional lunch stop at a local Mexican cafe (which I've heard is the best in the area). Please arrive on time as we will be leaving promptly at 10:00 am.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
