    • upper Montgomery County, east of Clarksburg

    Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society and Montgomery Parks

    Spring comes early to Maryland, though few people notice its unassuming arrival. On our bi-weekly saunters on the best of Montgomery County's natural surface trails, we'll be on the lookout for vernal occurrences such as the emergence of skunk cabbage flowers, shy salamanders, maple tree blossoms and the returning migrants.

    Our hikes are usually up to 3 miles in length and include a few ups and downs. We stop frequently to listen, watch and learn. Directions to the trail head will be emailed to registered participants prior to the hiking date. Dress for whatever the fickle springtime weather brings us!

    NOTE: This is not strictly a plant trip and may touch on natural history, cultural history, plants, animals, geology, and whatever information participants can share!

    For ages 18 and up.

    • Catoctin Mountain Park, MD

    Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

    Catoctin Mountain Park was established in the 1930's.  The trip leader started going to the park in 1973 and led wildflower walks there until about 1990.  He recently found that there is no record for Pink Lady's Slipper (Cypripedium acaule) and only one vague record from about 1971 for Large Whorled Pogonia (Isotria verticillata).  He feels that they can probably both be found on Catoctin Mountain (the eastern and only named ridge in the park).

    Catoctin Mountain is primarily Weverton Quartzite composed primarily of silica, the same compound with makes up sand. It makes a poor, acid soil which mainly supports an Oak-Hickory forest with a heath understory. Higher up, several pine species are added.

    We will start on the connecting trail at the end of the Visitors' Center parking lot and follow it to Wolf Rock Trail. We will then take Wolf Rock Trail up to Wolf Rock and then take the connecting trail to Chimney Rock. This will be the first time the leader has seen either of these overlooks in person. We will take the Chimney Rock Trail down to the parking area by Camp Peniel. The leader will leave a car there for ferrying drivers back to the Visitors' Center parking lot.

    The leader asks that one car come a few minutes early so that he can put a car at Camp Peniel and get back to the Visitors' Center parking lot.
