High Rock Nature Trail

  Catoctin Mountain Park/Cunningham State Park (and therefor High Rock Nature Trail) are only about 30 minutes drive from Gettysburg.  Not sure why someone would say it is ''quite a long drive'' from Gettysburg.  We have not been to High Rock (just now heard about it), but we got to Catoctin/Cunningham Falls several times a year from Gettysburg.  It is a short drive and the trails and views (Chimney Rock/Wolf Rock/Thurmont Overlook) are pretty awesome.
