Challenging for me, 1st hike in years, but worth it. Views from overlook trail are amazing. Add 1.4 miles from Md Heights loop to overlook. Very little parking at base of trail. Worth the $10 to park at Harpers Ferry NPS parking lot and either hike or take bus to park and cross railway tressel to C&0 canal to base of trail. Our total hike from Harpers Ferry to overlook and Md Heights trail was 7.9 miles.
great hike. parking can be tough to find, especially on the weekend, but is free at the base. for a guarenteed parking spot, you can pay to ride the bus, from the visitor center to harpers ferry. make sure to bring snacks and water. the view is amazing!
