SUNDAY, Jan 15th 1:45PM, Indian Lookout, St Mary’s Cemetery, Emmitsburg, MD 2.5 miles. Take U.S. 15 south, past Mount St Mary’s College and make a right turn on Motter Rd, a quick left on St Anthony’s Rd and right on Grotto Rd. Follow it to the parking lot for the Grotto and cemetery.
This is a more challenging hike due to some steep hills at the start and rocky terrain. The first 0.2 miles are the steepest, if this is too much, the one mile walk through the Grotto is very lovely. The trail levels off after the first 0.5 mile and offers a great view of Gettysburg at the turnaround point (Indian Lookout). A walking stick and/or binoculars might be handy. Due to parking issues, please do not arrive before 1:15, this hike starts at 1:45.
