Maryland becomes the eighth state in our “14 in ’14” program. According to volunteer hike organizer Earlene Sorrells,
1 out of 4 families suffer from some form of mental health issues, and we all know someone who has issues even though we may not know we know. I have a dear friend who has suffered from some issues just by having a reaction to a medication. This is what inspired me to organize this hike and raise funds for awareness.
Thank you, Earlene, for organizing this hike. Read on for details about this amazing hike.
Maryland Heights Trail Hike
May 30, 2014 • Harpers Ferry National Historical Park
Gaze upon spectacular views of historic Harpers Ferry and the Potomac River…
Revel in vistas across three states…
Visit Stone Wall, a Civil War naval battery fort…
Steep, rugged, and primitive – with a thick veneer of Civil War history…
These are just a few of the attractions of the four-hour Maryland Heights Trail hike near Knoxville, Maryland.
This hike is a great way to meet new friends and enjoy the natural beauty of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park.
Yes, you will hike on a trail so steep that Abraham Lincoln himself turned around, but it is well worth the effort!
