    Catoctin's diverse cultural resources provide several vignettes of our nation's history in one small location. Native Americans quarried rhyolite for the production of lithic tools. A charcoal and iron industry is still visible today, along with smaller industries including farms, sawmills, and an old moonshine still. Historic structures and products of the Works Progress Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps, along with the site of our nation's first Job Corps Center, are tangible reminders of the capability of vigorous youth programs to strengthen the nationís economic and social fabric. The totality of resources found in Catoctin Mountain Park reflects much of the early fabric of our country.With 25 miles of trails winding through Catoctin Mountain Park a variety of experiences are available ranging from easy to strenuous, many leading to outstanding scenic vistas.
