LOCATION MARKERS
Location markers were installed along the trails at Monocacy Hill. They are located approximately every half mile and will be used by emergency responders to locate anyone who might need assistance while hiking.  Each location marker is tied to GPS coordinates to pinpoint an exact location.   Please be aware of these markers as you hike on the trails.  If you are injured or lost, call 911 and give them the number of the nearest location marker.  Be safe and remember to be out of the park before dark.
