“A woodland trail to spectacular views atop the Thurmont Vista Overlook.”— Hunter R
Starting at the Thurmont Vista Parking Area, follow the trail as it climbs gently, passing an intersection with the Blue Ridge Summit Trail before reaching the Thurmont Vista Overlook. From the overlook, enjoy stunning views of Catoctin Mountain Park and the town of Thurmont below.
After leaving the overlook, continue following the trail as it climbs gently along a ridgeline on a mixed tread to a junction with the Wolf Rock / Chimney Rock Trail.
