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.

Hit the trailhead at 4:30 AM in the dark to catch the sunrise. Nice little 3 mile out and back with almost no one else there (just one other hiker at that time).

Nice trail with awesome overlooks. Even though it's less than 4 miles know that it will take most people a few hours. Personally I would not take the steps up to the overlook the way down will be steeper with more sketchy rocks. There was a cool stream to filter water from and it's ice cold.
