Dan's Rock


Take I-68, exit 34, Rt. 36 South to Midland. At intersection, turn left onto Paradise Street Extended, cross bridge and go to the second street (Paradise St) and turn left and go about three miles.

The 2,898 foot rock structure sprawls along the brow of Dan's Mountain overlooking the panoramic Potomac Valley that stretches for twenty miles. The viewer will be delighted in the colorful foliage and the surrounding rolling mountains from the new 28 foot square observation deck with gazebo. A wheelchair ramp makes it handicapped accessible. Dan's Mountain received its name after Daniel Cresap, one of the first settlers in the area, who was killed on the mountain.
