Take a Hike with a REALTOR New Year's Day! Patapsco Valley State Park River Rapids Nature Walk


Take a Hike with a REALTOR New Year's Day! Did you know all 50 of our United States will be hosting guided  First Day Hike? State parks across the country, including our beloved Maryland, are aiming to entice you to the great outdoors. Hiking, walking, strolling, climbing and simply experiencing the treasures of our state parks. Knowledgeable state park staff and volunteers will lead people of all ages and hiking experiences and  many Maryland State Parks are offering pet friendly hikes as well. Oh and make a positive difference in your physical health along the way.


Here are some helpful tips from the American Hiking Society about cold weather hiking, following normal safety practices and the 10 essentials of hiking. I never leave home without water, non perishable snacks (almonds or a breakfast bar) and a flashlight and I’m only showing houses. Hiking requires a bit more planning so you and your hiking party remain safe.
