Harpers Ferry is one of the most popular tourist destinations in West Virginia, and the locals love it, too. But we must admit, it can be pretty crowded, so next time you go, add this hidden gem to your list of easy, all-season hikes. It’s a bit less traveled than many of the area historical sites, but it’s just as magnificent!

To learn more about accessing this hike, check out this information provided by the National Park Service about the Schoolhouse Ridge South Trail. The Allstadt Farm is specifically featured by the NPS here. Note that a portion of the southern end of the trail may be closed due to a sink hole.
