A rugged hike to two outstanding vistas and a fascinating rock formation in Catoctin Mountain Park This is a somewhat rugged hike to two outstanding vistas and a fascinating rock formation known as Wolf Rock, traveling through immense stands of hardwoods and abundant mountain laurel. Special considerations: With two outstanding vistas, add plenty of time to your itinerary for enjoying the views.

Very steep and rocky at the onset (it was predominantly rocky throughout...make sure to wear thick-soled hiking shoes) but the reward of Chimney Rock is worth it. Incredible views! Wolf Rock is a cool stopping point too but there's no view from the rocks. Thurmont Vista is a nice view and the rest of the trek back to the visitors center was a gradual down hill walk through the woods. The Catoctin's are beautiful and I look forward to exploring more of its trails.

A really nice trail in the fall! Would definitely rate it more moderate than hard, initial hike up the mountain was definitely steep but not too difficult. Would not suggest climbing chimney rock without good grip shoes, though. Beautiful views, about a 2 1/2 hour trip in and out but we stopped a lot for pictures!
