Harper's Ferry. 8.5mi. 4.5hrs. (~1hr 20 mins from DC) "The first 1 mile is also steeped with history, climbing a flight of steps hand hewn in the 1800's, passing St. Peters Roman Catholic Church, the ruins of St John's Episcopal Church, Jefferson Rock, and Harper Cemetery. All before reaching the secondary parking area where the hike crosses the US340 bridge and Shenandoah River."
