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.
Nice trail, good views of Potomac River. Garvey Shelter is nice. Good hike with a dog. Not overcrowded!
This was a nice trail. The beginning of the path and the path leading to the overlook had a few people on them. I could definitely see how the trail to the overlook and the overlook itself could become crowded on the weekends or during the warmer months. The first two miles or so are uphill with very little level spots, but once you get past that it is downhill from there. I recommend parking at the base of the trail off of Sandy Hook rd. There isn't much parking so I'd get there early in the morning. The view from the overlook is spectacular. There's a little bit of a view at the top of the main trail as well.
