Appalachian Trail to Loudon Heights Trail Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This hike passes through three states and the town of Harpers Ferry, providing river hiking, ridge crest hiking, and great views. The Appalachian Trail extends from Georgia to Maine. This section of the trail passes through the picturesque small town of Harpers Ferry, the scene of many historic events. The town itself is at the confluence of two major rivers, the Shenandoah and the Potomac.
Harpers Ferry National Historical Park attempts to preserve and interpret the local history of the town, particularly during the time of the Civil War. Within the park is the Redoubt Trail, a short, wheelchair-accessible interpretive trail to the cannon redoubt that was utilized in the defense of Harpers Ferry. Special attractions: In Harpers Ferry, one can browse the little shops and “rehydrate” for the remainder of the hike."
