We will be hiking to Maryland Heights at Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. This is a moderately strenuous hike, but definitely doable for someone in reasonable shape. Unless the forecast is for pouring rain, I do plan to do the hike, because usually it's still worth it. We'll then eat lunch in a restaurant in town, likely Hannah's Train Depot, in Harper's Ferry.
Please note that the miles are approximate, but should be more or less For those bringing dogs, please note that we will be using a short metal staircase (there's railings and such), but dogs don't like it because they can see through to the ground below. You might have to carry your dog up (and down) this short staircase.
