Pretty good trail. Just a note and this may have already been said (We hadn't planned on taking this trail so I didn't look). When you get to the sign for the red or blue trail, the blue trail is a little rough going up. If you go to the right you can come down that way. If you're looking for a workout, by all means go left at the sign

Horribly marked on the trail. What looks like the trail may not actually be the trail. Just very confusing and not worth it.

They are three great overlooks! You can see coopers rock overlook and cheat lake. The walk is easy and flat. There’s some mud/ water, but the walk is very easy. There’s a cool stone dam in the beginning too. The trail is mostly a gravel/ dirt road, so you’re walking to see the view, which I was fine with. I had to use AllTrails to follow to path, so def start recording. On the way back, the app wanted us to walk along Snake Hill Rd, but it looked dangerous so we used the roadside trail instead (marked on the map). Also the overlooks are unmarked, but they are marked on the all trails app. That’s how we found them. I had cell service the whole trip and full bars at the overlook (at and t; sprint). If you like coopers rock but want a better view with less of a crowd, you’ve found the place.

Weverton Cliffs has an awesome view, in my opinion better than Maryland heights. However I recommend parking at the base of the trail instead of walking from Harper's ferry. Seems like it goes on forever and the path is surrounded by dead trees.

picture-esque scenery with every step. super fun hike

Nice, easy hike for days with beautiful views.

Mostly a gravel path where tractors can get back there to maintain the wildlife tree preserve they have going on towards the back. Grass along the path is unkept, so I'd advise to wear long pants or gators. I went alone to check it out first and good thing. My little ones would have been bored to death. Lots of trees, some birds. There is a big rock cliff towards the back off the trail, but was meh. Lots of horse and dog poop, do watch your step. Very quiet, hardly any other people. Trail is not marked, but used All Trails map to verify my path. No AT&T cell service.

Not too challenging. Definitely recommend spikes or crampons for winter hikes. View is amazing at the top. Lots of good rock climbing.

There is a lot of down trees and crossing the creek in spots was really difficult. I was happy that it was below freezing or it would have been a lot muddier. It was nice and secluded.

One of my favorite trails in Davis

Great trail, difficult in some spots because it was super muddy which made the rocks slippery. Incredible views though and an opportunity for some nice exercise as well as some as relaxing stroll pace on the way back down.

The river is high enough to block the trail, and much of the trail is straight up and down the mountain side. Still, interesting and fun.

Fun trail if you have waterproof boots. When the bridges are out (often), there's some shallow wading required.

Too muddy today. Not the trails fault. Will try again another day.

This hike is so easy now. Did the whole thing in an hour and 20 minutes with detours around all the downed trees and photos.

This is one of the prettiest trails WV has to offer. Neat waterfall, beautiful clear water winding through woodland, and a good climb in parts to show some challenge.

Fun, challenging-yet-doable hike! The trail splits into two sections: the Stone Fort Trail and the Overlook Cliffs Trail. I ended up doing both. the Stone Fort Trail is more strenuous and doesn't have quite as beautiful of a view, but it's still fun.

I hiked this during the height of the snow this morning 2/20. I love this hike, but what is really sad is the ampunt of destruction the ice storm did last week. Multiple detours around downed trees, almost all trees in several spots on the ridge were affected. Its going to look quite different come soring, I think.

Would consider this moderate rather than hard. The beginning is the hardest part because you swiftly ascend the ridge. After that though, it’s pretty low key. I would recommend going when it is warmer because you spend a ton of time on the ridge and it’s hard to enjoy the views when it is cold and windy.

A pretty path along the Shenandoah that is easy and quick. We used it to walk from parking to Harper’s Ferry and thus walked outside of the trail limits as shown on the map. There is a brief period that you must traverse on sand. Dog friendly!

Great walking trail that would be good for families or just a nice, leisurely walk for the dog. You start out in a handicap accessible path, travel down the ridge through trees, then end up meandering through a field. You can either choose to circle back up Bolivar Heights or continue to school house ridge. This is very easy and takes you across the street where you gradually ascend a field. You then retrace your steps back to Bolivar Heights and end the walk on a steeper but very short walk up the ridge.

Great cardio climb. Love the change in terrains. I connected this with the Maryland Heights trail loop. A great day hike!

beautiful no matter what time of year! great cardio climb. one of my favorite places to hike through the year.

I’ve made this trip many times, all my devises say it’s just under 6 miles. The ups and downs are steep and rocky but manageable. I go camp for up to 6 days and carry up to 50lbs of gear and it’s approximately 2.5 hours from road to falls.
