Section 1: Pen Mar Park to Wolfsville Road

Multiple Paces

Multiple Distances

(~10 Mi. max)

This section hike begins near the Mason-Dixon Line, the border between Pennsylvania and Maryland. Highlights of this section include Pen Mar Park, a former amusement park built in the late 1800s; High Rock for its scenic vistas and the highest point on the AT in Maryland; the boulder-strewn section called the Devils Racecourse (reached via a side trail off the main AT); and Ravens Rock. This section of the hike series ends at Wolfsville Road (MD 17). This hike includes one of the more challenging ascents, a 440-foot climb over 0.5 miles, to the top of Quirauk Mountain; scenic High Rock makes a good place to stop for a brief rest.
