Hagerstown officials on board in support of Civil War Railroad Trail

Bike PathsBy C.J. LOVELACE, Herald-mail

Hagerstown officials earlier this month joined the Washington County Board of Commissioners in support of a new biking and hiking trail that would connect Hagerstown’s City Park to the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal near the Potomac River.

The pledge came after the five-member Hagerstown City Council heard a proposal March 6 to create a Civil War Railroad Trail, running 23.4 miles south to Weverton, Md.

Dick Cushwa of the city’s Bicycle Advisory Committee outlined the project, which would follow the former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad line and ultimately connect to the 184.5-mile C&O Canal.

The proposed trail project would promote tourism, economic development and healthy lifestyle opportunities for city and county residents, Cushwa said.
