Description: We'll hike close to 4 miles around Clopper Lake (11950 Clopper Road, Gaithersburg, MD), followed by an optional nearby indoor lunch option (probably Taco Daddy's Cantina). From I - 270 local lanes, take exit 10 and turn right at the end of the exit ramp onto W Diamond/ Clopper Road. Two miles later, shortly after you pass Game Preserve Rd. turn left off of Clopper Road into the park, as indicated by the park entrance sign. Go straight back on the park entrance road, past the weekend pay collection kiosk (unstaffed on weekdays, no fee due) As you approach the T, use the slip lane to turn right, then take the first left turn, then very shortly, turn right into the parking area for the Tire Playground/ Pines Picnic area/ restroom. You may follow the signs to the Boat Center, but stop short of the Boat Center, and park at the playground. (If you find the park gate closed, it should open by 10 a.m., per winter park hours.)
