Trail shared by Luke AT

A steep trail leading to the crest of Maryland Heights, civil war earthworks, and views east.

Description

From the junction with Overlook Cliff Trail, the trail proceeds north and ascends steeply on an old military road to the crest of Maryland Heights at the site of a Civil War encampment and fortification earthworks.

The trail then doubles back south on a singletrack path past more Civil War era ruins with a few decent views to the east over the Potomac River Valley before descending back to a second junction with the Overlook Cliff Trail.
