I've been here twice, each time for an overnight on a North-South road trip, each time bringing one of my sons. I'd like to go back sometime for a long weekend and do some hiking.

Parking is always at a minimum in Harpers Ferry but we rode our bikes in so not a problem. So much history to learn, definitely worth a day trip.
