The majesty of the Appalachian trail unfolds all around you as you climb to the Black Rock cliffs. 

Park on White Oak road to access the trailhead for this magnificent hike. Be sure to wear sturdy hiking boots--the trail is rocky at parts and there are streams to cross. Accessible February-November.

Along the AT

Hiked through all of the Maryland AT as one of my long section hikes. Really enjoyed it, especially at places like this! Harper's Ferry was also a highlight for us!
