hiking

Did the Thurmont loop today and it was a great hike. I think moderate is correct. Can be a challenge if you are not in decent shape. Plenty of climb and rocks but no real challenge. Keep your pace up and you will feel it. The view wasn’t great today since it was a pretty grey overcast day. Butterflies everywhere since there was plenty of milkweed and wildflowers. Very pretty. Just a few people on the trail. We did somehow take a small wrong turn near the end missing a purple blaze somewhere but the little bit of extra on the orange/red route was great. Have fun!
