A visit to this quaint, historic community, at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers, is like stepping into the past. Stroll the picturesque streets, visit exhibits and museums, or hike our trails and battlefields. There's a wide variety of experiences for visitors of all ages, so come and discover Harpers Ferry.

Easy hike and stroller accessible has a lot of history

Wasn't sure about the trail conditions because of the Storm the night before. Trails were dry, very rocky but the many switchbacks made this a Great Trip. The Cliffs were crowded with Day Hikers and also a group of Boy Scout were earning their Merit Badges. Look for the Blue Blaze to the Cliffs because the sign is Missing. Look for the split in the trail with a North & South bound sign. Turn there and a few trees back will have a small Blue Blaze.
