This year’s National Trails Day hike is Saturday, June 7, in the C&O Canal National Historic Park.  Join the Montgomery County Outdoor Education Association for a moderate 3 mile circuit hike along Loop C of the Billy Goat Trail.  Meet at the downstream parking lot at Carderock off of the Clara Barton Parkway, just outside the beltway.

Plan on seeing some champion trees, late-blooming wildflowers, and some spectacular rocky outcroppings.  As usual OEA will provide small trash bags to pick up any litter seen.  Plan to be at the far end (east) of the parking lot by 9:00am.  Give Mary or Joe Howard a call (301-585-8818) for additional information or more precise directions or email maryyhoward@verizon.net
