Come out on a mid-week hike through Blockhouse Point Park and along the Muddy Branch Trail in beautiful western Montgomery County, Maryland. Starting at Pennyfield Lock on the C&O Canal on the banks of the Potomac River, we will traverse Blockhouse Point, before picking up the Muddy Branch Trail, and following the Muddy Branch Stream Valley Park out-and-back before returning to Blockhouse Point Park. Return by way of a scenic stretch of the towpath of the C&O Canal. Hiking distance: 10 miles over flat to rolling terrain. Bring a day pack, hiking boots, lunch and snacks, and two quarts of water. Meet at 10:AM at the C&O Canal National Historical Park Pennyfield Lock parking lot off of River Road in western Montgomery County. Leader: Glenn Gillis, 571-217-4477.
