Hike in the moonlight along the C&O Canal towpath to Great Falls, Maryland, 4 miles

Time: Hike starts promptly at 8:30 p.m. and goes to approximately 10:30 p.m. (2 hours).  It’s best to arrive about 10-15 minutes before the start of the hike (around 8:15 – 8:20 p.m).

Meeting Place: Parking lot across from Old Angler's Inn, 10801 MacArthur Blvd., Potomac, MD. 

Reservations: Unlike CHC's Saturday bus hikes, signing up for Moonlight Hikes is not required.  However, if you do sign up, you can be notified of a possible change in plan.  Usually, light rain alone will not cancel the hike--for safety reasons, severe weather or a thunderstorm will.
