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 views from Chimney Rock! A descent amount of uphill but not too strenuous.

I really enjoyed this hike! From the VC, it's better to go up the steeper part of the hike rather than start the trail that's parallel to the road. (Going uphill is shorter) I can see why people categorize is as "hard" because of the incline of the trail. Part of the trail is pretty easy though and you can jump the rocks, but do be careful because there are some crevices in the rocks.
