Maryland Heights Trail

Mile 61 - This section of the canal runs alongside Harpers Ferry Road where parking is very tight.  Plan on getting there early if you want to spend the day tubing, rafting or kayaking. The Maryland Heights trail leads up the side of the mountain on the Maryland side and to a view of the town below.  It is a very steep hike up to the top (even tougher than the climb to Weverton Cliffs) but there are the ruins of a Civil War era fort along the way.  For a map and description of attractions, see the NPS web site
