Hike Harpers Ferry with the UHP

Already getting sick of the city life? Eager to explore beyond E and K streets? Love the smell of the Shenandoah river in the morning? Hike with the Honors Program!

Sign up here (AND PAY $5 AT THE UHP OFFICE) by Wednesday, September 11 to reserve your spot!

On Saturday, September 14th, the Honors Program is hosting a $5 hike with your classmates, Prof. Ralkowski, and staff, and certified TRAiLS guides. We’re going to Harpers Ferry, a historic town in West Virginia, complete with actors in historic garb and a big ole mountain to climb!

Yeah, this is nice.

We’ll meet in the Foggy Bottom townhouse at 8:15am, and the hike should last most of the day, returning to campus in the early evening. Whether you are a professional hiker or have never even scaled an escalator, come out, enjoy the fall sunshine, and get to know UHPers outside the classroom. We’ll provide lunch and guides, and you’ll provide insightful questions and witty banter. See you there!
