This album contains pictures from various trips I have taken along the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath in the past 13 years or so.
Today sightseeing, walking, running, cycling, horseback riding, and backpacking can be done on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal towpath. There are picnic areas, campsites with facilities such as water and toilets every few miles as well as access to side trails, roads, and towns for pick-ups, drop-offs and re-supply along the 185 miles.
On a beautiful day you might have to wedge your way between all the other users but I have hiked many times in near solitude and enjoyed many nights camping along the towpath since the mid-1970s.
The best source of information about these activities is found at the National Park Service site here.
