on Endless Wall

1 day ago

Beautiful hike. I highly recommend going down the metal ladders to the rock climbing access area. You can hike along the bottom of the endless wall and meet/watch climbers. Lots of great views from the cliffs when you climb back to the top. This is a fun/adventurous trail for all skill levels.

Brutal yet beautiful! Challenging hike to the top but a very nice, well maintained and clearly marked trail.

The start and stop point could be better marked or described as both myself and another couple spent a decent amount of time trying to find the trail... so here is what I suggest. Follow directions per the map but once you get to the looped road where it shows you start drive just past the loop and park on the left- you’ll see a spot.

From parking to trailhead- continue walking up the road to where it dead ends at a cabin and you will see the trail head sign on the right hand side as you approach the cabin. From here you can go either left or right as it is a looped trail.

Besides a bit of initial confusion finding the trail- the hike was wonderful!

Not walkable. Too much trash.

absolutely love this trail

Fairly easy. Well marked and maintained trail.

Absolutely beautiful view! Well worth the climb.

First time I have hiked this. We hiked directly after hiking the Maryland Heights. Hot day but lots of fun. Around 15 miles in total

Second time this. We were with a Make-A-Wish fund raising group. It was super humid, but lots of fun. Great views of Harpers Ferry

Did Ellenboro to Pensboro out and back than West to tunnel 7 and back nice ride

The road leading up to the trail was extremely dangerous to go up ,and I would not recommend taking a car that won't withstand off roading. There are many sharp turns in the weathered gravel road.

The upper loop was challenging but leveled out at the top. plus there were much fewer people on that part of the trail

This is one of my favorite trails to hike around Morgantown, mainly for the view payoff at the end of the trail. It is becoming increasingly popular so can be busy at times. The trail itself is very rocky and muddy in spots. I have to pay attention to every step as to make sure I don't twist my ankle. Easy walk until the final ascent which is very steep and walking back is a gradual climb.
I hike out to Ravens Rock several times a year, always go back for more.

Beautiful park and trail. The water is crystal clear, and the ferns in the woods were gorgeous. I do agree that I wouldn't say this trail is easy, as it is overgrown in places and is fairly rocky, but this trail was definitely worth it!

Absolutely beautiful views

Wonderful hike with lots of altitude! Def got my heart racing. We finished it up with a rest at the top in about 2 hours.

amazing spots to chill

This is a beautiful trail, very maintained, and it connects with other trails. I will be coming back soon.

Go to one miler for the family. My 3 year old easily keeps up and can climb up to the top of the rock formation. Not blazed but the path is really clear.

Hiking this trail is hard if you do the middle fork trail to the big beechy. Definitely recommend starting at the big beechy because when you hit the waterfall it’s a brutal uphill . Great trail though!

Did the hike as a first backpacking trip. It was pretty rough for us, mostly because it stormed and North Fork trail turned into a mudpit and one of my buddies was fighting mono (he was diagnosed later). Was also not aware that you cross small streams about 7 times so change of shoes and lots of dry socks are essential. After climbing out West in the mountains, not too impressed with the scenery mostly because of the lack of wildlife and any overlooks, but definitely some pretty neat, rugged trails.

I really enjoyed this trail but my God we’re the spiders bad yesterday! About every ten feet was a new web waiting to smack me in the face.

I found myself a nice big rock to lay on with an amazing view about a mile and a half in, but be careful if you decide to go to the rocks as I saw a rather large copperhead (picture posted) between some of the rocks. Next time I will have to hike with my fishing pole as there was plenty of fishing access points along the length of the trail.

On the final incline the trail became a real battle as most people don’t seem to go that far up. Which is a shame because it is very beautiful up there. There were a few large downed trees, and the trail was mostly overgrown at this point and became hard to follow and the spiders became progressively worse.

On the way out the spiders wasted no time in yet again conveniently placing their webs in my face.

I will do this trail again in the fall as I feel it would be the best time to get some of the views offered by this trail with the leaves not obstructing some of the scenery.

I did not hear any growling, but I do believe I found a few bear prints on the trail (picture posted).

Awesome trail with ladder access to climb down and explore other trails! Sights are incredible! Check it out!

switch backs almost all the way up but beautiful views from the top

Did this hike to Pipestem State Park. By the time you are about 8 miles in you are ready to be at Pipestem. Though I have never done it down and back, I did hike this hike about 4 times this year. Definitely easier to walk from Pipestem to Blueston. It's all downhill. Will surely try to do a down and back.

Parked at Harpers Ferry instead of trail head which adds about another mile each way. Park can be accessed earlier than stated opening time and boxes are used to pay entrance fees. From Harpers Ferry, you cross the bridge from West Virginia into Maryland with lots of opportunities to see trains emerging from the tunnel and passing by you. Overlook for harpers ferry second to none but can get crowded on weekends. If you do the full Maryland Heights loop, counter clockwise is less strenuous in terms of ascending to the top. Well populated trail with lots of friendly dogs.

Close to my house so I wanted to get my dog out since we had rain over in the mountains this weekend. Nice little trail with bathrooms and water available. I have been hitting this one since I was in school. Good running trails as well if you want to break up the monotony of running on pavement.

Fucking amazing excuse my langue but by far the best one I’ve ever done

we enjoy this one with our dogs.

Kind of muddy and rocky, but it had just recently rained. Not too strenuous of a hike until the last hill, but beautiful views from the top.

Not "easy" 1500 feet of elevation change. The return portion is a stream. Trail need some help some down trees.
