Kick off the holiday season this year with a hike to Maryland Heights, overlooking the cozy town of Harpers Ferry. Harpers Ferry will be celebrating their annual Olde Tyme Christmas event; the town will be decorated for the holidays. We'll hike up to the overlook of Maryland Heights. The hike is about 4 miles long and there is some strenuous uphill sections. You need to be in decent shape and sure-footed to do this hike. The hike will take approximately three hours, maybe less. It will be cold, dress in layers as you will warm up on the trail once we get moving. Bring a snack to eat at the top, and after the hike we'll warm up at one of the Town's Taverns and take in the town's festivities.
For those wishing to carpool from Arlington, we will meet at 9:00 AM Sunday morning at the Fairlington Villages Management Office located at 3001 S. Abingdon Street Arlington, Virginia 22206. Please be on time or be prepared to drive yourself.
For those wishing to drive on their own directly to the trail head in Harper's Ferry, meet the group at 100 Potomac Street Harpers Ferry, WV 25425 ( Potomac Street & U.S. 340 Alt / Shenandoah Street ) at 10:30 AM by the footbridge that crosses the Potomac River.
