My daughter and I parked at the Park Lot in Ft. Hunter and walked the Towpath trail to Empire Lock and then returned to the Park Visitors Center via the Woodchuck Trail. It was a nice 1.75 miles loop hike. The recently re-modeled VC was beautiful. The exhibits were well done and the staff extremely helpful. Trail conditions were very good; well mowed and clear of any obstructions.
