Max Patch Trail

Max Patch Trail Professional Review and Guide

"From the moment you stand at the foot of Max Patch, to the time you reach the top, you’ll be in awe of the stunning views around you. The dogs enjoy running free while you take in the scenery.

The trail is extremely popular among dog owners. On any given day you’ll see several dogs romping around on the summit. It’s truly a slice of doggy heaven on Earth. While the dogs enjoy making new friends, you have the privilege of hiking on the Appalachian Trail."
