Hike Harpers Ferry Maryland Heights - TUESDAY

Trying a WEEKDAY hike hoping some member can join me in this popular hike. This hike leads us up Maryland Heights to the iconic scenic overlook of the town of Harpers Ferry at the convergence of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers.

We'll meet at the Harpers Ferry Amtrak station and we plan to leave for the trail at 10:00 AM. This Hike has options: the basic hike is a moderate to strenuous 5.3 mile hike out to the Overlook. An additional 2.2-mile loop up to the Civil War fortifications can be added. Wear sturdy shoes and bring plenty of water. Depending on how we feel we can split groups or all just go the short (or the long) route so be prepared with flexibility. This hike has a great overlook that provides a wonderful view of Harpers Ferry. Afterwards we will visit the town and get lunch/refreshments.

Please post comments for carpooling. Bring water and snacks for this hike.

      Thanks, Tom. I'm just not comfortable driving alone without a GPS. Maybe another time. Karon

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
