    Hike the Ranger Trails at Codorus State Park

    5 mi
    I'll be honest. I wasn't expecting much from Codorus State Park. But, my Saturday was open and I wanted to go somewhere I wouldn't have to fight for legroom.

    Hike Hemlock Gorge

    5.0
    3.5 mi / 300 ft gain
    This is one of Baltimore's little known gems. The area contains an ecosystem which is essentially non-existent outside of the Appalachian mountain regions. It has also been seemingly under-appreciated and abused by locals. I am trusting that the Outbound Collective community will do its part to e...
