“Awesome way to spend an afternoon on a pretty day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The trail is well traveled and kept up...even after a recent storm the path was clear. The views are wonderful. Bears Den is definitely worth hiking to.

The colors for fall were great. The drive and area/s to get out to walk around are very clean and pretty.

“Lives up to the hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Hiked from Keys Gap to Harpers Ferry. Great hike with the family - definitely recommend going towards Harpers Ferry - going the other direction is a lot of up hill :) . Beautiful scenery - wear good shows - rocky in many places.

Love that the appalachian trail is so accessible from so many points near DC....kids love exploring bits on day hikes. Fall color hikes are spectacular!
