The Appalachian Trail runs just under 2200 miles from Georgia to Maine. The C&O Canal Towpath is 184.5 miles from Cumberland to Washington, DC. Just outside Harpers Ferry, these two trails run concurrently for around three miles.
We will walk those miles from Weverton, Maryland to Harpers Ferry, passing river rapids, historic railroad lines and bridges, and notable viewsheds. We’ll share some history along the way and also enjoy some early spring views of the Potomac River and—we hope—Virginia bluebells.
Hike leader Chris Craig is a Certified Tour Guide in Harpers Ferry and a regular hike leader for the Sierra Club. 
This hike is about 3.5 miles, and other than at the endpoints will be on level chat surfaces. Bring water and perhaps a snack. Dogs will not be allowed on the shuttle ride. Meet at the Harpers Ferry NHP Visitor Center, from from where we will shuttle with River & Trail Outfitters to the hike start. At the end of the hike in Harpers Ferry, participants may ride the park shuttle back to the visitor center or have some lunch at one of the town restaurants.
