Few People Know This Charming Visitor Center In West Virginia Is A Halfway Point On The Appalachian Trail

Everyone (or nearly everyone) knows about the Appalachian Trail. But not many realize that, although only small segments of the trail cut through the Mountain State, the portion that passes through Harpers Ferry, West Virginia contains perhaps the most geographically significant place along the whole 2,190-mile route: the Appalachian Trail’s psychological midpoint.

Have you hiked portions of the Appalachian Trail? Are you interested in learning more about the AT, which is arguably the most famous trail in the nation? Then swing by the Harpers Ferry Visitor Center and chat with the folks from the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. You might even meet a through hiker or two while you’re there!

The Appalachian Trail isn’t the only famous trail to pass through the Mountain State, nor even the longest. For example, have you ever hiked (or even heard of) the American Discovery Trail?
