Appalachian Trail and Museum, Gardners, Pa.

<b>Distance from Baltimore:</b> 80 miles, less than a two-hour drive<br>

<b>Why it's worth the gas:</b> The museum is at Pine Grove Furnace State Park, about the halfway point on the more than 2,100-mile trail that runs from Maine to Georgia. It offers artifacts from the first end-to-end hikes.<br>
<br>
<b>Don't miss:</b> You don't have to go to Pennsylvania to enjoy the Appalachian Trail. A 41-mile piece of the trail cuts through Maryland, the second-shortest segment of all the states and fairly flat by AT standards.<br>
