The Appalachian Trail is the longest hiking only footpath in the World ranging 2,190+ miles from Georgia to Maine traversing through 14 states.  Harper’s Ferry is also the site of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. (An interesting place to visit.)

Appalachian Trail Conservancy @ 799 Washington Street

Horse & Wagon Tours @ White Hall Tavern on Potomac Street

Civil war enactments

NOTE: Try to park in town at the Harper’s Ferry Train Station parking lot or at the Visitors Center. Parking is a fee, so it is best to try and carpool.  *Those not hiking can arrive and enjoy the historic town and meet the hiking group after the hike near John Brown’s Fort.
