A great history hike with tons of ruins and artifacts! This flat, easy trail goes along the banks of the Shenandoah river and a railway as you visit the water ductworks of a once active mill site. Interpretive signs show pictures of the day.

Beautiful scenery and informative details about the ruins. Easy walk through history. Great to bring a picnic lunch along the river.

Quiet, peaceful walk. Even in the dead of winter. Would recommend for anyone interested in a very historic Area (Harpers Ferry) that also has beautiful scenery.

This tranquil scenic area was the site of a munitions factory during the Civil War. If you have the opportunity to take a guided hike with a park volunteer, do it. If not, enjoy the lush greenery and the views of the river. A nice hike for a muggy summer day.
