Over four million people visit the C&O Canal each year. From spectacular views of Mather Gorge and Great Falls, peaceful walks or bike rides through nature, tours of lock houses and other historic structures, special events, or boat rides on the watered sections of the canal, the C&O Canal offers something for everyone.

A nice walk in the woods, but with little of interest for hikers until you reach the aqueduct. The trail is far better suited for biking.

Fabulous hiking, biking and walking. Packed dirt ride, mostly flat or gentle elevations. Beautiful views along the river and plenty of wildlife to be seen.

Short and steep, views are worth every bit of it.
