Maryland Heights Hike

Maryland Heights Overlook Guided Hike

Guided hiking tour Harper's Ferry Road to Maryland Heights

Maryland Heights is the area's BEST for scenic hikes. Add to that an area rich in American history and you have a must-do hike!

The trail begins just across from the historic C&O Canal, that threads its way up the Potomac River. You'll climb steadily up a picturesque stream valley, lined with rock outcroppings and forests. When you reach the top of the mountain, a side trail winding through the woods leads you to the spectacular overlook of two rivers and three states. Maryland Heights towers above the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers and Harpers Ferry National Park. You are on top of the world!

"Harpers Ferry played an especially important role during the Civil War. So important was this site that it changed hands 8 times during the four years of the war. Batteries of artillery occupied several sites on the surrounding hills including the slopes of Maryland Heights. The early abolitionist John Brown seized an armory in Harpers Ferry and made a valiant last stand against federal troops." - Charles D
