The C&O Canal tow path (956)
Everything you need to know about planning a trip on the C&O from food to lodgings.
- Today, the canal's towpath is a favorite of hikers, joggers, and bikers. Like myself, many local bikers have considered trying to bike the entire 184 miles between Georgetown and Cumberland, MD.
The Great Allegheny Passage (529)
The Great Allegheny Passage, a 150 mile biking and hiking trail connecting Cumberland, MD and Pittsburgh, PA with a 52 mile branch to the Pittsburgh International Airport. We expect to have the connection between the Passage and the C & O Canal Towpath in Cumberland, MD completed in 2006, creating a continuous non-motorized corridor from near Pittsburgh to Washington, DC.
The Washington, Baltimore & Annapolis Recreational Trail (517)
The WB&A Trail map plus local on road routes.
Washington to Annapolis bike route (531)
This is a runner site that lets you map out routes using interactive google maps, a so called "mashup". While it's meant for runners, using for any kind of routing is easy and it's free. Now all it needs is an "auto cue sheet generator" from the map.
Western Maryland Rail Trail (WMRT) (640)
The WMRT is a 20+ mile trail that follows the bends and curves of both the C&O Canal and the Potomac River. The WMRT is perfect for hiking, biking, inline skating (roller blading) or, weather permitting, crosscountry skiing. And it's handicap accessible. From Han*censored*, Maryland, the trail travels 10 miles to the east to about 1/2 mile from Fort Frederick State Park, and another ten miles to the west to Polly's Pond (a small body of water where canal boats would winter). The trail is especially suited to families, novice cyclists (it's almost completely flat), and for anyone seeking a pleasant, leisurely ride.
