Appalachian Trail at Spring Time

April 2nd, 2014 by Cindy Neugebauer

Weverton Cliffs 001With 60 degree weather, spring finally arrived in “South County” section of Washington County Maryland.  The Appalachian Trail winds through this part of Maryland with many hiking opportunities along the way.  One of the closest access points to Inn at Red Hill is Weverton Cliffs.  There is plenty of parking right off Rt. 67 near the 340 Bridge.  The hike is steep and rocky.  As you can see Bob chose to use is new trekking poles.  I find these poles very useful on the way down the slope.

Weverton is a 2 mile hike; 1 mile up, 1 mile down.  At the top you have a beautiful view of the Potomac River as it winds along the banks of Maryland and West Virginia.  One of the many gems in this area of the country.

Happy Spring Everyone!!
