Join Us! Volunteer Upcoming Events
Gambrill State Park - Trail System Parking Area We meet in the lot for the Gambrill State Park Trail System parking area. From US 15 in Frederick: Take exit 13B off US15 onto US40/West Patrick Street. Outside city limits, US40 becomes Baltimore Pike. In 6 miles, turn right onto Gambrill Park Road. Cross over Shookstown Road, pass the Rock Run Area on the left, and, in 1.2 miles from US40, turn right into the trail parking lot, marked by a wooden sign reading GAMBRILL STATE PARK TRAIL SYSTEM PARKING LOT Public Transportation: There is no public transportation to, or in, Gambrill State Park. NOTE: Please remember to take the leader(s) number(s) with you but please respect the fact that we are all volunteers and there is often no cell coverage at trailheads and varies according to service provider. If you call very close to hike time, please understand that we are very busy with pre-hike preparations for ourselves in addition to group sign in, pre-hike briefing, and then leading the hike. It is also very difficult to provide instructions to someone while following them too, hence providing very detailed directions on this separate page. Leaders are advised to not answer phones once a hike is started so we don't miss a turn on the trail due to the distraction of a call. Thank you for your understanding and see you there!
