It was so much fun to hike up to the Maryland Heights overlook of the town and the confluence of the Shenandoah and the Potomac rivers below. So cool! Get your walking shoes on.

“Watch the steps!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

Just be advised - the walk to the base of the hill of Harpers Ferry does take you over steps, rocks. etc. Beautiful walk but be prepared for the terrain.

“Appalachian Trail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

Nothing like it .Iconic.Many local people have hiked at least some portion of the trail a few have done it all. Often see people coming thru, feel part of a grand adventure.

Harpers Ferry is on the Appalachian Trail. Walk across the pedestrian footpath across the river for a breathtaking view.
