“Nice Trail at least the part that I was on”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I was in Harpers Ferry and saw that the Appalachian Trail went through the town so I figured I had to go and walk part of it.

“Short trek on the trail - beautiful and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We try to hop on the trail whenever we get a chance for a short or a long hike, and Harpers Ferry has eluded us for a couple of years, so we made a point of going this spring. It was a beautiful, clear day, breezy over the water, a pleasure. Worth it if you are in the area.

“First time on the trail!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We tried to do some hiking on the trail up in Delaware Water Gap on our honeymoon but did not prevail, this time the B&B we stayed at was literally four blocks from it, so we had no excuses. We hiked down the section by Harper's Ferry cemetery and Jefferson Rock into town, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They take very good care of the section here, enjoy!

“Go for a short hike!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

We live near the Appalachian Trail, where it crosses South Mountain near Middletown, MD. It's an easy thing to drive up to South Mountain Inn on Alternate Rte 40, park across the street from the Inn, put your hiking shoes on, take some water, and set out north on the Trail. There is a neat stone tower nearby that provides great views, and you can walk as little or as much as you wish. This is a terrific outing with small children, because you can climb the tower, try out the Trail, and get back to your car when they get tired. And of course you get to see the REAL hikers going by, laden with huge backpacks.

“Hike to Weverton Cliffs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you get a chance, visit the Appalachian Trail Center in Harpers Ferry and get information to do a day hike on the Appalachian Trail. We did a 10 mile (5 miles there and 5 back) to the Weverton Cliffs in Maryland which give you an aerial view of the Potomac. it was a beautiful flat walk along the C&O canal for part of it and then a moderate climb up a mountain. The view made it worth the trip. There is no charge, but you can make a donation at the center (we became members for $35 which goes toward upkeep of the trail).
