Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

We will trail hike in the Cabin John Stream Valley Park west of Glen Echo. This section has wonderful vistas as we climb above the stream. There is a good description of this location in “Finding Wildflowers in the Washington-Baltimore Area” by Cris Fleming, Marion Lobstein, and Barbara Tufty (p. 54).

Leader:  Ken Bawer


Registration through March 2 for members only.


Notes Moderate hike with some steep, strenuous slopes and some rocky, uneven surfaces in sections. I consider myself an amateur, but you won't get lost and we will have fun pooling our plant knowledge. The Cabin John Stream Valley Trail Map can be downloaded from:
