Appalachian Trail: Annapolis Rock Maryland
Length: 4.6 miles

 

Annapolis Rock is a rock cliff that towers high above Cumberland Valley to the west, offering a fine view of the valley and of Greenbrier Lake. The rocks attract day hikers, rock climbers, photographers, picnickers, bird watchers and seekers of solitude, as well as overnight campers. With all this use, impact to the area is having a noticeable effect.

Every flat area near the rocks is totally void of vegetation from legions of tents being set up, destroying any new growth that may come up. Remnants of past fires render the soil sterile for any new growth as well. Dead and downed trees have long been cut up for firewood, so small live saplings have become fair game for those looking for wood to start a fire. Trash can be found on the cliffs, in the woods, and in old firepots. Toilet paper "flowers" are scattered in the woods. We are loving this beautiful area to death.
