Experience the beauty that is Harpers Ferry National Park in the summertime! We will trek along the Appalachian Trail and witness sweeping views of Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and the Town of Harpers Ferry, with its numerous railroad bridges. Although there are a few serious inclines and descents with a total elevation gain of ~3000 feet in this loop, this could be an ideal backpacking trip for beginners who are ready for a challenge and advanced backpackers. Trip details will be finalized by email the week before the trip. WWO has a limited amount of backpacking equipment to lend as a member benefit. This trip is Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon.

Be prepared for Park entry fees: Free with National Park pass; Vehicles – $20; motorcycle – $15; and walk-in or bicycle – $10

Miles:  12 .0

Rating:  Beginners looking for a challenge and Intermediate and above backpackers.

There is limited space on this trip, please register early!
