Description

The Orange Trail treats visitors to fantastic views of Harpers Ferry and the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers.

Starting at the junction with the Blue Trail, follow the orange blazes as the trail descends from the hillside to a clearing strung with power lines. At the clearing, enjoy fantastic views of historic Harpers Ferry before diving back into the woods, contouring the hillside for about a half mile before reaching a junction with the Appalachian Trail (AT) and the trail's end.
