Harpers Ferry Access Plan Completed (WV/MD/VA)

American Whitewater has worked with local paddlers and agency planners over the past year to create a river access plan for the Harpers Ferry, WV area. Two popular and scenic class III whitewater runs on the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers converge in Harper's Ferry, yet there are only 3 public parking spaces at the take-out and the public put ins are far upstream on both rivers. The plan is the result of an outstanding effort by our members and partners, and we are now working to improve river access opportunities based on the plan. Special thanks to the National Park Service's Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) program for their support. Scroll down the text on the left or click here to check out the plan!
