Harper's Ferry Fall Foliage Hike

  • Skill level : 1


  • Fitness level : 3


Hit the trail while surrounded by fall's colors! Breathe in some fresh air while leaf-peeping along the Appalachian Trail through Harper's Ferry and the C&O Canal. One of our favorite places to explore this time of the year, we'll climb atop Maryland Heights to see fall's changing leaves while overlooking three states. Following a 6 mile trail that gains 1000' of elevation, we'll catch a bird's eye view of the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers and share tips for staying comfortable while hiking. Grab your day pack and lace up those boots and we'll provide transportation, lunch, and the inspired guides for this incredible hike that we can't wait to share with you!
