This event combines activities designed to promote “flip-flop thru-hikes” of the Appalachian Trail with activities that celebrate the beginning of the outdoor season in Harpers Ferry.
Those who love the outdoors are invited to experience what makes Harpers Ferry such a great destination with its incredibly scenic and historic location in the Blue Ridge Mountains located at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers.
Harpers Ferry offers a wealth of fantastic hiking, cycling, rafting, and climbing opportunities, with restaurants, shops, art galleries, indoor and outdoor exhibits, all set close to world-famous historic sites related to the Civil War, African American History, and the explorer Meriwether Lewis. Long-distance hikers come to learn about and how to prepare for a flip-flop thru-hike, a new way to hike the length increasingly popular 2200-mile Appalachian Trail. By starting in the “psychological halfway point” of the Appalachian Trail of Harpers Ferry, “flip-flop thru-hikers” help conserve of this magnificent American treasure while avoiding the crowds of almost 4,000 thru-hikers who start in Georgia, the traditional starting point.
Come kick off the beginning of the outdoor season with us!
