    I would recommend hiking southbound from MD into Harper's Ferry. Ending the hike with the view from Weverton Cliff and then walking into HF is much more climatic than starting out in HF in either...

    As opposed to helicopter or motorized vehicle. The AT to the Black Rock spur is wide enough to get 4x4 vehicles to the spur trail -- it used to be a dirt road to/from the Black Rock Hotel back in...
