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.

beautiful hike, especially in fall. Chimney Rock is wonderful and everytime I've been it's not very crowded. Great trail for dogs.

Short hike with some great views -- definitely recommend! Be careful near Chimney/Wolf Rocks, as there are a lot of crevasses. Easy to follow, trail is well-blazed (orange)

Awesome trail with great views and cool geologic history. Plenty of spots for some scrambling too! Great confidence builder for new hikers like myself, with lots of crevices to jump over and rocks to climb. The trail is a challenge but the views are worth it. Only downfall is the trail is poorly marked/designated in some places.
