Overview

For nearly 100 years, the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal served as a transportation route to move coal from Western Maryland to the nation's capital. Today, the towpath is a hiking and biking trail that stretches the entire 185 miles from Washington, DC to Cumberland, Maryland. The most frequently visited portion is the 14 miles from Georgetown to Great Falls Park, where visitors can enjoy the spectacular scenery and historic structures that remain. Mule-drawn canal boat rides are offered in Georgetown.
