Walk in the Woods: C&O Canal at Harper’s Ferry

Saturday, November 2nd 2019 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join us for a family friendly walk along the C&O Canal as we explore the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers, learn the trials, tribulations, and successes of these two vital sources of water for our region with representatives from the Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin and the Harpers Ferry Water Commission.

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.
