PATC Map 7. Fare: $20/$25 plus park fee or multi-agency park pass, and tasting fee (if applicable). Departs from 17th & K Sts. and the Grosvenor Metro. Both hikes will start and end at the Harpers Ferry Visitor Center parking. Moderate and long hikers will use the trail from the Visitor Center to hike 1.5 miles into town. Both hikes will continue across the pedestrian bridge over the Potomac River and turn left and walk for .3 miles along the towpath. Then, both hikes will take the pedestrian bridge over the canal and carefully cross Harpers Ferry Road. Moderate hikers will proceed directly to the Maryland Heights Overlook. Long hikers will ascend steeply to the Stone Fort before hiking down to the Overlook. Moderate hikers will retrace their steps to town and long hikers will follow the route of the moderates. From town, all hikers will take the shuttle bus to return to visitors’ parking. Following the hike, we will stop at the Two Twisted Posts Winery (http://www.twotwistedposts.com/). The winery visit will be a leisurely 2 hours, or slightly more. Tastings will be $15. Please let the leaders know when signing-up if you will be doing the tasting. The hike leaders will be taking the tasting money along with the usual hike fare on the bus. Any additional details for the winery will be provided closer to the hike. Est.: 8.3 miles, 1500’ elevation; 6.8 miles, 900’ elevation. (MD)
