Hike heading to Jefferson’s Rock

By Staff | Mar 9, 2012

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society invites hikers of all ages and abilities to join veteran trail hiker Dave Michener for a short hike up to Jefferson’s Rock at Harpers Ferry on Sunday, Mar. 25.

Participants will meet at the Harpers Ferry train station at 9 a.m. Anyone with an interest is welcome to come along. There is no fee for the hike but parking in the train station lot will cost $5.

Bring a camera to capture the amazing views from Jefferson Rock. Thomas Jefferson visited this spot on Oct. 25, 1783 and called it “perhaps one of the most stupendous scenes in nature.”

On the way back to the train station, the group will hike along part of the Appalachian Trail.

This hike will be relatively easy but it will include some steep steps. It will take about an hour. It will take place rain or shine.

Participants should wear sturdy footwear and dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions.

Pre-registration is encouraged but not required. To pre-register or for more information contact Dave at
