I was going to bike from Harper's Ferry to DC, but I see on the NPS website that the trail is closed between MP 55 and 50. It looks like the next location eastward is Point of Rocks. I know there are no guarantees in life, but is that parking lot relatively safe to leave my vehicle parked for 3 days while I visit DC? If not, do you have another suggestion? Thanks for your help.

Hi. I can't vouch for 3 days but I left my car in lot for a full day in early May and it was fine. There is a small restaurant/ Pizza place right across the street and the park and parking lot are pretty open to view.I think Visibility helps to detour crime.There was some lighting after dark too.
