Harpers Ferry

Harpers Ferry sits at the junction of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers. The area is a National Historic Park, and features miles of hiking trails and an old-fashioned downtown district. We checked out the town, and went on the cliff view trail. Our total hike was about 4.3 miles. It is a very beautiful region - Thomas Jefferson said "This scene is worth a voyage across the Atlantic."
