Hike Bolivar Heights/Schoolhouse Ridge North

Join Sierra Club-Eastern Panhandle for this 2.5-mile, easy to moderate hike. Enjoy views of the Blue Ridge and its gap at Harpers Ferry, Civil War fortifications and stories, walks through shaded forest and expansive meadows. The terrain is rolling, and the trail is earthen and irregular. Open to all adults and minors (with parental permission or accompanied by an adult) prepared for moderate exertion and possible heat. Well-behaved dogs on leashes also welcome. Bring water, sun protection, and a snack if desired. We will carry on in light rain, but cancel in case of a downpour.

Meet at Bolivar Heights Battlefield, Whitman Ave., Bolivar, WV. Note that parking is limited at the battlefield. Those able to add a hill to their hike are asked to park at Harpers Ferry Middle School at the base of the hill and walk up. There is no charge for this hike, but NPS admission is required ($5/person or $10/car or Park pass.)
