Catoctin Mountain Park - Thurmont Vista is a 0.9 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Sabillasville, Maryland that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from March until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

Short jaunt to Thurmont Vista, heavily wooded, modest views This isn't the best portion of trail for taking in the views along this ridge, nor does it take you to the best view along the ridge. For that you'd be much better off seeking out Chimney Rock (you can take in Thurmont Vista and Wolf Rock on your way to Chminey Rock). However, if you are just looking for a short hike with an OK view and one that can be handled by the smaller hikers then this one is worth considering. The hike itself is much like that of any other in the area. You'll see the typical Maples and Oaks that dominate the area and of course plenty of rocks. Like the rest of the Catoctin Mountains the area is largely metabasalt, created from higher pressure lava during tectonic events. Years of erosion have left these ancient rocks exposed and naturally all over the trail. Upon reaching Thurmont Vista you'll find a nice bench from which you can enjoy the view of Thurmont to the southeast.

La vue était correcte, j'aime davantage Cat Rock, Chimney Rock et Hog Rock, mais c'est toujours très amusant!
