Mountain Maryland has over 60,000 acres of public wild lands in which to play year-round. Your choices range from mild to wild. Quiet hikes and relaxed bike rides on the C&O Canal or the Great Allegheny Passage are great starters. Or be one of the brave ones and tackle caving, climbing or whitewater sports fun.

Don't stay inside in the winter months! Build a snowman or a snow fort. Make snow angels. Or go for a nature walk in the crisp, clean mountain air!
