About Us

The Mountain Club is the largest hiking club in Maryland. We support Leave No Trace principles. We help maintain local trails and the Appalachian Trail. We organize and lead hikes and other outdoor activities year-round. Most of our hikes are in Maryland, but we often schedule hikes in Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
