Rocks State Park, Pylesville


There are two main areas to Rocks State Park. The first is Kilgore Falls, a .5 mile hike to a large waterfall surrounded by sheer rock cliffs. The second is the King and Queens Seat, a epic rock outcrop over a canyon. Both are beautiful and can be done in the same session.


Seasons : Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring

Fees : $3 for parking at King and Queens Seat

Catoctin Mountain/Cunningham Falls, Frederick


Climb to the top of Chimney Rock for some epic views or hike to the waterfall and visit the lake. Both are good options at this large state park.


Seasons : Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring

Fees : None

Harpers Ferry / Maryland Heights


This one is for the adventurous couples. Climb to the top of Maryland Heights with me for some epic views. The catch, its not an official trail and it is an incredibly steep climb to the top....but you can get there in about 20 minutes. The session ends in downtown Harpers Ferry with its historic buildings and ruins. This is a very strenuous hike so prepare to get a bit sweaty on the way up.


Seasons : Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring

Fees : None
