Tourism: Catoctin Mountain Park

| 0 Comments

" Misty Mount lodge, built in 1937, served as one of the earliest camps for people with disabilities [in the US] and The League for People with Disabilities continues to use the Catoctin facilities to this day."

A brief destinatin review by "Rebecca" at We Love DC:

Nestled an approximate 90 minute, northwesterly drive from DC,  Catoctin Mountain Park located just outside of Thurmont, MD, is a great spot for a day trip or the perfect location for a weekend getaway from the district's hubbub.

I've long had Catoctin on my radar since moving the DC, in fact visiting the national park is one of my New Year's resolutions. And while I wouldn't consider now the perfect time to visit the park, I'm of the spring/summertime hiking ilk, the park is definitely still opened to hikers, drivers and visitors, although you should check the park's website prior heading out for closure updates, and is well worth the effort.
