Hike to Waring Viaduct
November 20 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
The Izaak Walton League of Rockville will welcome the Germantown Historical Society and guests onto their property for an exclusive walking tour of the Waring Viaduct — the 350-foot-long, 75-foot-high architectural marvel that carries the B&O Railroad over the Seneca Creek, hidden in the woods on the southern border of Germantown.
We will meet at the League’s pavilion, take the 10-minute hike to the bridge for a viewing, and return to the pavilion afterwards for refreshments.
To get to the pavilion, enter the League property by car at 12057 Clopper Road, which is the gated entrance on the east side of Clopper, just south of the intersection with Waring Station Road and north of the power lines. The gate is yellow and the road number is visible.
You will then follow a gravel road a quarter of a mile until you reach the pavilion; we will gather there. The Clopper entrance will be open one hour prior to the 1:00 start time to allow guests to enter. Please drive carefully when you turn off of Clopper, as there is no shoulder on the road at that point.
