We will be hiking the Lake Shore Trail around Clopper Lake at Seneca Creek State Park. This time our start time is 2:00 p.m. Please try to arrive a few minutes early. It is approximately a 3.7 mile hike.
Please read these instructions carefully, as some people had trouble finding the meeting point for the hike in the past. We will depart from the BOAT CENTER. We are hiking around the lake, so if you are parking and don’t see water, you ARE NOT in the right place.
This address will take you to the park entrance:
Seneca Creek State Park
11950 Clopper Rd, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20878
You will enter the park from Clopper Road. You will drive up to the fee station where you will have to pay a fee to enter the park. Follow signs to the boat center. Drive past the fee station and go STRAIGHT through the four-way intersection. The road will wind around you will turn left to park down near the lake at the Boat Center.
The hike will depart just East of the buildings and start CLOCKWISE around Clopper Lake.
