We will start at The I-70 footbridge and hike approximately nine miles on Saturday to the PATC’s Bear Spring cabin, and spend the night there. The next morning, we will hike the rest of the 13.5 miles into Harpers Ferry, where we will have dinner. After dinner, we will shuttle back to the parking lot at the I-70 footbridge.
