Description:
Great 14-15 mile hike through Cunningham Falls and Catoctin parks. <br> <br> This hike starts at the Manor Area Campground parking lot just off 15 a couple of miles south of 77. There is a $3 fee/car to park here. <br> <br> For a shorter hike the loop portion at the top can be done from the Catoctin Visitor Center on 77. The loop is about 6 miles. <br> <br> <br> <br> It starts with a 1.5 mile 1000 ft climb. <br> <br> From there it&#039;s pretty flat for a while going from the top of Bob&#039;s Hill to Cat Rock. <br> <br> From Cat Rock it&#039;s a big down hill to the Catoctin park headquarters then right back up to Chimney Rock and Wolf Rock. <br> <br> Guess what&#039;s next, another down and back up to Cat Rock. <br> <br> From this point it&#039;s retracing your steps back to the Manor Area parking lot.
