The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal operated from 1830 to 1924, and covers a distance 0f 184.5 miles from Washington D.C. to Cumberland Maryland. The path is now a national park.
This past weekend I and three others rode our bikes from Washington D.C to Sheperdstown, WV, mile 0 to mile 75. It was a challenging trip, filled with awesome views and great times. After a refreshing evening in West Virginia, we rode back to D.C. Truly an excellent out-and-back adventure, one that I would recommend to anyone looking to see and experience some of the greatest sights in the region.
