You don't need to go far to find great hiking. Within about an hour of Baltimore and Washington, DC many trails offer solitude, surprising wildness, and challenges that will suit you. Some are dotted with historical artifacts. Others offer fine vistas from atop rugged bluffs. See slides of photos and get tips on where to go, what to expect and how to get ready from William Needham, the creator of "The Hiker's Notebook" (an on-line resource for all things of interest to hikers) and contributor to several area trail guides, who will introduce some of his favorite routes in the Baltimore-Washington area.
