Virginius Island Trail to Maryland Heights Trail. Take a walk through Harpers Ferry Trails. Harpers Ferry town is dog friendly. The trails are well shaded until you walk on the bridge towards the Maryland Heights trail. Enjoy the day walking or jogging through the trails.

This was a lot of fun to walk with my sons. The cut stone stairs to the visitors center, though, were hard on the knees
