One of my perrenial favorites...
History combined with beauty! A view, and a little bit of elevation change.
A note on dogs: I generally try to make my hikes dog friendly. BUT: consider the weather, and especailly the projected daytime temperature, when considering whether to bring Fido. Also note this hike crosses a bridge over the Potomac, the staris on the MD side are wire mesh, which may prove...problematic for larger dogs.
I moved this to an early start time becasue a) the lot fills up quickly on summer weekends and b) hopefully it'll be a bit cooler, with dog-friednly temps
|How to Get There:|
Meet in the parking lot of the train station (pay to park), Potomac Street & Shenandoah Street Amtrak/MARC Station Harpers Ferry, WV 25425 From Baltimore: I-70 W to US-340 W.
