Weverton Cliffs and Harpers Ferry Day Hike
Saturday, March 25, 2017
8:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
$10 members, $15 non-members
Level: 6, 9.0 miles
This out-and-back hike will combine both the rewards of climbing upward and a leisurely stroll. We will ascend on the AT to Weverton Cliffs, where there is a wonderful view of the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers and the town of Harpers Ferry. After relaxing on the cliffs, we will descend and pick up the AT on the level C&O canal towpath, which we will follow until we cross the river on the footbridge and go in to the town of Harpers Ferry. We will hike in town as far as Jefferson Rock then folks can explore town for a while in the afternoon – get ice cream, go shopping, or take in one of the museums – before meeting up later to return along the towpath.
Registration Deadline: Friday, March 24, 2017
