Mini-bluffs, High & Low Wire Points, and Mythological Ruins

Mini-bluffs


Individual rock outcroppings overlook the Shenandoah Valley, but the bluffs are obscured by trees in the Summer. These mini-bluffs are giant moss-lichen limestone rocks, following the contour of the mountain-side; as opposed to the larger, more visible bluffs that stick out perpendicular to the mountain-side.

Not this time. This will be another adventure, some other time.

High Wire Point

The highest of two overlook areas where the electrical wires cut across the mountain, High Wire Point has a vista of the harpers ferry valley, and sandy hook to ‘South’ Mountain (north-east).

*

Low Wire Point

The lower of two overlook areas (but still high) where the electrical wires cut across the mountain, it has a better view of Maryland Heights from the River, canal, on up.

Mythological Ruins

Winding around the north-east mountain top, the path begins to go down towards the Stone Tower and Split Rocks Cliff Overlook. Buried in undergrowth are massive boulders, which look like mythological ruins from a forgotten civilization.
