Harper's Ferry & Maryland Heights!

  • May 17, 2014 · 8:30 AM

Maryland Heights overlooks the town of Harper's Ferry WV at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. This is a pretty strenuous hike- the climb up to the heights is pretty steep. We will be doing the stone fort trail to take in some Civil War History stuff at the top. The total hike is only about 5 miles, but again, there is a mile of very steep terrain we'll be going up and down. 


We will be meeting at the Security Blvd Park and Ride at 8:30, and car pooling to the Harper's Ferry train station to start the hike. If you want to meet at the train station, please let me know. There's an ice cream shop at the end of this hike.

I have a silver Subaru Outback and my cell number is[masked] 3211.

    I want to go, but have a question first. I've done this hike with my dog before and want to make sure dogs are allowed on this group hike. If so, I'll have room for one person to carpool with me.

      It depends on if my husband decides to go. If he doesn't go, I'll have room. I'll let you know....

      My husband and both dogs will be riding along, so we'll probably be driving straight to the train station in Harper's Ferry. See everyone there!

      I'll have my dog as well so that leaves one seat free in my car. I'll be at the PNR at security/70 at 0830.

      Nothing says you can't have a burger AND ice cream, especially after that hill.
