Join Sierra Club-Eastern Panhandle for this 11-mile hike that includes rolling terrain on South Mountain, a dramatic river overlook at Weverton Cliff, descending switchbacks to the C&O Canal, a flat walk along the canal to Harpers Ferry and a walk up in town on city sidewalk. Most of the 900-foot elevation gain occurs at the end in town. Be prepared for stretches of very rough and rocky trail. Open to all adults and minors (with adult supervision or permission) of adequate fitness level for a lengthy hike on occasionally very rugged trail.
Park regulations limit us to 25 attendees, with preference given to those who have reserved.
