great views and easy to hike

HARD. Know that going in it is straight up hard from the get go. The middle part is technical and fun. The trail is marked exceptionally well! The descent is steep. ....tight. Watch your footing. Its a fun trail! Enjoy!

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.
