Welcome to the Mountain Club of Maryland

Our members lead hikes every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Other Club activities include backpacking, camping, canoe/kayak trips and trail work. Founded in 1934 to help build the Appalachian Trail, the Club is currently one of 31 clubs that maintain the AT for all to enjoy.  Members also support trail work in Patapsco Valley State Park.
