  yes , sounds like it ......

...... last weekend the parking lot had a huge (as in small hill size) pile of gravel built up off to the side of it , looked like it's been there awhile .

Yeah D , taking Harpers Ferry Rd. (along MD side of Potomac) , Limekiln Rd. is a left turn towards the river . Limelkiln will go by the parking lot and eventually come back out to Harpers Ferry Rd. almost at Antietam Creek . If you zoom "way in" on google or similar map Limekiln and Mt. Lock Canal Rd. will come up .

Dargan launch is below your ledge , this place is above it , about half way from ledge to Antietam ... that little path hill is kinda steep near the top at the C&O Tow path , I was thinking coming back up might be best with two people .

From what I saw , it would be an easy pull/drag over (or between) the rocks where the ledge meets the MD. side , at least at the level it was this past weekend , which was 1/2 way into the yellow on Dargan's ramp . I checked the USGS when I got home , Edwards was 5.19 , P.of Rocks 2.66 , Hancock 4.26 , Paw Paw 5.02 ... river falling .

Inside the ledge's cove right on the MD shore , it's deep , a sraight down drop off the shore , maybe undercut (??), be careful if getting out there to take a leak , etc. ... but man that cove looks sweet , so does the intire ledge . I don't think I could paddle back up over the ledge , too swift , but couldn't tell what the VA side was like ... but there's no doubt a sneak back up where the ledge meets the MD shore is doable w/o problem .
