Midweek Hikes on Wednesday
Description:

Elk Neck State Forest, North East, MD.  Depart at 9:00 AM from the Elk Neck State Forest, Park Office Lot, 717 Irishtown Rd, North East, MD 21901 (39.577705, -75.916772) for an 8-10 mile hike.  Mostly level trails and dirt roads, but expect some ruts and small stream crossings.  The loop hike will be entirely on dirt trails and dirt roads.  We'll hike some new trail in the eastern part of this 10 mile wide pine State Forest.  Bring water and lunch.  DRIVING DIRECTIONS: Find your way to US RT 40 at the DE/MD state line.  Head west on US RT 40 for 4.2 miles.  Then turn left onto Old Elk Neck Rd and proceed 4.0 miles.  You will pass the Park's Arboretum parking lot along the way.  Next turn right onto Irishtown Rd and proceed 2.3 miles.  The park entrance will be on your right, but it is very difficult to see from that direction.  Shortly up the dirt road, the parking lot will be on the far left.
