I biked this trail in June and it’s very doable. The hills are minimal. The trail includes old train tunnels; they are eerie but impressively historic. The trail also passes through a small, quaint town which also contains a lot of history.

great lower body workout! ((positive thinking will make you push forward and up

great time . made a 15 mile loop from here

Absolutely breathtaking from the bottom or the top Wonderful place to stay. no cell phone service is actually amazing. Nice break from the hustle of life! Have to see these rocks in person. Pictures don’t do them justice. Great weekend stay.

Breathtaking view from the top. Very very hard hike. Straight up. Was April but still felt like 100 degrees.

Fun little walk close to downtown. The trail is clean and stroller accessible.

Gorgeous scenic overlook. The beginning is straight uphill, and fairly demanding. It’s not an easy hike. The scenic overlook is amazing. Spectacular view of Harpers Ferry. This is a “must do” hike for everyone!

Awesome boardwalk trail with lots of beautiful views, colors, and scenery.

Trail is a steady climb. Best views are past the warning sign on top of the rocks. It is dangerous. Be careful. Kids MUST be held on to. Views are awesome. If you are unsteady or unsure, use the viewing deck.

Took our GSD on this trail and came back with a worn out puppy. Some good up hill with a good rocky ridge top about 3/4 through the loop just before your decent.

Fairly challenging but a good length with a great view of the Harpers Ferry train bridge at the end. It’s quite steep at the very beginning and coming back up from the overlook at the end, but the elevation gain is mostly all in one place. The trail is manageable even when muddy.

My only complaint is that there isn’t much to look at along the trail aside from the view at the end and crossing the Shenandoah at the beginning.

It’s definitely a challenging ascent but well worth it once you make it to the overlook. We watched the sunset and it was spectacular. Highly recommend

great view!

Did this in 2 days on mountain bike with backpacks. Tough! The woods looked like something from TheLord of the Rings!

Great trail. Easy downhill walk out, uphill all the way back. If you go down to both cliffs, it’s a little tougher because of the rock gardens. Well worth the short hike in the fall just to see the colors. You can mountain bike this, but the final down hill to the cliffs is very difficult.

Hill in the beginning is NO joke. Beautiful view and so worth it. Watch out for the runners. Parking is a pain but I scored a spot right at the opening. Tow path isn’t really marked that well so if you don’t park in town make sure you ask someone on the trail what they saw on the last mile marker.

A beautiful, muddy hike. Bring a copy of the map. At one section there where 3 different trail markers going different ways. Keep going straight and you'll be fine.

Great trail with amazing view of Charleston from the top. Trailhead is walking distance from downtown.

great trail with my dog. moderate incline for the return trip.

varied terrain with a tough climb. nice scenery. challenging hike for the family, and marshy in spots. overall very nice

Hiked this on a mild winter day, going clockwise - loved it! Was just hard enough to be ok for a novice hiker but also good exercise. in the winter, when the trees are bereft of leaves, one can see the adjacent mountains through the forest, and there are some beautiful views along the way as well as some interesting vegetation, like bright green lush moss, hay-like fields, a good amount of pines on sections of the trail, and more.

Easy, steady hike up with lots of switchbacks. View at the top is gorgeous. The hike was a little boring and there were a lot of people even in the off season. Overall a decent hike, though. There's a neat little historical cabin on the other side of the parking lot, too.

this trail is up hill all the way, not a lot of stumbling but so worth the view

great hike and great views of Harper's Ferry and the Potomac River

The trail, even when wet, is great! The initial ascent coming up from Shenandoah Road is probably the toughest part of the whole route. The actual Loudoun Heights trail is flat to rolling with no particularly challenging parts. A great hike to chain with Maryland Heights if you've got the time.

Love this hike!! Short and moderate. Good for all hikers! Pup friendly, and a great sunrise hike. Definitely recommend.

Walked many miles on this trail.
