Located in Western Maryland, Annapolis Rock is a popular hiking destination. Easily accessible via Route 40, park by the side of the road and head up the trail.
I hiked this trail in late October on a cloudy day. Fortunately, it was not a complete white-out and I wasn’t entirely enveloped in cloud by the Rock.
Annapolis Rock is no 14,000 footer and you can hike up to it with relative ease. If you’re itching for more, continue on to Black Rock Cliff, take a little rest and come on back the way you came.
Within the boundaries of South Mountain State Park, to the north and east of Interstate 70, Annapolis Rock is a nice destination to choose for a little fresh air and exercise.
