Join REI's professional guides this winter for a unique hiking experience through the natural wonder and human history of Harpers Ferry and Maryland Heights. We'll hike along the AT, through the storied town and climb to a historic view of three states and two rivers. Along the way, we'll teach you a few tips to making winter hiking more comfortable and enjoyable. Bring your sense of adventure!
