There are 40 miles of the storied Appalachian Trail (A.T.) in Maryland. We have been having some spectacular weekend weather in the local area and I am taking the opportunity to hike sections of it.
The terrain in Maryland is considered fairly easy by A.T. standards with only a 1,650 foot change in elevation from the low point at the Potomac River (250' elevation) to the high point at High Rock (1,900' elevation). But there some sections with impressive scenery as well as historic sites.
My recent hike took me past the first completed monument dedicated to the memory of George Washington. It was erected by the citizens of the city of Boonsboro in 1827.
