Walk in the Woods: C&O Canal at Harpers Ferry, WV

November 2 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) and the Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin (ICPRB), as we explore the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers to discuss the trials, tribulations, and successes of the rivers as vital sources of water for the region.

The event is free but please signup via the Meetup page.

ThisĀ event is produced in partnership with AMC and is part of ICPRB’s 2019 Walk in the Woods series of hikes throughout the Potomac watershed.

Expect to walk 3 miles on flat, easy terrain at a leisurely pace. Please bring a bottle of water, snacks and a bug-repellent of your choice. Dress in layers as the weather may start chilly but warm up as we walk. The walk will happen in light rain but will be cancelled in the event of more severe weather.

We will meet in the Harpers Ferry train station parking lot at 10am, setting out at 10:15am. We will cross the river using the pedestrian bridge to the C&O Canal.
