If you're in Harper's Ferry, you'll probably walk here at the end of the historic township. It's where the Shenandoah meets the Potomac, and the footbridge of the Appalachian Trail crosses from West Virginia to Maryland.

This is an actual triangular point, where you can stand and view the meeting of the fast moving Potomac River coming in from the left and mixing with the waters of the slower moving Shenandoah River coming in from the right. It is also the...More

Get your photo taken on the Appalachian Trail on this site where 3 states converge. Cross the walking bridge and say you walked to Maryland via the Appalachian Trail!!

I have gone in at Harpers Ferry and The Point. Not very deep at Harpers Ferry, across from the bookstore. I have just walked down to the water and gotten in. Be mindful of the inner tubers or kayak people.
