Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

Awesome, and really fun to jog!

January, 2017 by isaacwathieu

I went on a 11 mile run through swains lock and it was so fun, you would occasionally see other runners but not too much. I also enjoyed the scenery around me. It is mostly dried dirt but has some mud. Really great if you are going with family members.

Huntingdon and Broad Top Rail Trail (H&BT Rail Trail)

Beautiful Ride

November, 2016 by shelbra

November 12, 2016, 45 degrees outside, 1:30 pm start at Hopewell. It was beautiful. 2.3,4 gear going in 3.5,6 coming out. Only passed 2 other bikers. Riding along the river edge was beautiful relaxing and so enjoyable.

White tail deer crossing the road in front of us added to the beauty of this trail.

We only did the southern half today. Looking forward entire trail next trip.
Parking a little hard to find but we found it. Follow the green bike signs.

Great job to the organization on this trail!

Washington and Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park (W&OD)

Excellent Trail

November, 2016 by mtb_miguel

I have ridden this trail a couple of times while visiting the DC area. The trail is in very good condition and connects to several other trails. The trial seems to be very busy on weekends but not to bad during the week.

Washington and Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park (W&OD)

Great trail

November, 2016 by mtb_miguel

Awesome trail with minimal stops for traffic crossing roads. Lots of users on weekends. Week days are pretty quiet during the day. Great way to ride into DC from the west and connect the network of trails.

Cumberland Valley Rail Trail

Didn't notice any decline in trail

November, 2016 by dcar777

We rode from the Newville trailhead today, toward Shippensberg. We went as far as mile marker 2 and thought the trail was just as well maintained and enjoyable as when we rode it a year ago. Perhaps the deteriorating portion mentioned by some reviewers is closer in to Shippensberg. It was a beautiful autumn day, sunny but very breezy with temperatures in the upper 50s/low 60s. I don't think we would want to ride this trail if the temperature were below 55. It's fairly open with thin tree lines that don't block the wind. Most of the trail is well packed gravel. I was glad it wasn't wet, though, because it was laid down heavily in places and would be difficult to ride through if wet. It's a very pretty ride through farmland. We stopped at one road crossing to watch 8 or 9 Amish buggies pass. All in all, an excellent ride relatively close to Harrisburg and Carlisle.

Mount Airy Rail-Trail

Nice, easy walk through interesting area

November, 2016 by jmuffoletto

This is a simple and easy stroll through a very interesting area. There are some really interesting rocks and trees along the way and plenty of squirrels and birds. The old tracks are scenic and once the trail is completed it will be even better I think.

WV Route 9 Bike Path

Good workout. Pretty trail this fall

October, 2016 by bbladen

I have always wanted to do this trail. Driving from Berkeley Medical Center, Martinsburg, WV to Jefferson Medical Center, Ranson, WV may times, I have looked to the left and right on Route 9, thinking, I really want to do that trail. Today I got that chance. Starting in Ranson, WV trail head, I made my way through the 10 miles to the trail's end. (Note the parking lot is across the exit and not at the trail head,but it worked.) Not quite to Martinsburg, but about 2 miles shy. The trail is hilly and a bit challenging, not the worst I have ever done and it made a great workout. The ride is in the open; however, since today was a cool fall day, that did not matter. The leaves were beautiful, the ride great; although, a bit noisy with Route 9 following all the way. My only complaint is there are NO bathroom facilities. A "Job Johnnie" at either end would have made the ride more comfortable. At the "Martinsburg side" there is a Gas station about two blocks to the right of the trail. The only downfall is crossing busy route 9. All in all: Glad I did this ride!

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

Finding Mile Zero

October, 2016 by youker

It is a shame to bike 185 miles and not find Mile Zero and the River Lock in Georgetown. When biking the towpath when I meet thru bikers I offer the following advice. At Fletchers Boat House mile 3 switch from Towpath to Capital Crescent Trail. (Old RR) This takes you into Georgetown on K street under the overhead highway. Go to the end just before Rock Creek and go around the last building on your right (Georgetown Univ. boat house) and walk around to your left down stream and there is the river lock and ground zero.

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

C and O/GAP - a great combo,

October, 2016 by garykeese_tl

History, engineering, and (often) mud.

Great fall colors in October, amazing canal engineering, and civil war hisory thrown in for good measure. Tow path drains poorly, so be ready for mud if it has rained recently. Lots of hiker biker campsites every 10 miles or so, but be aware some are near the busy mainline railroad tracks.
I was concerned about using a two-wheeled trailer on the sometimes double track path, but no serious problems.
Easy to connect to GAP in Cumberland, MD and ride on to Pittsburgh.

Western Maryland Rail Trail

Beautiful

October, 2016 by bpatch

We started at the beginning of the trail at Sideling Hill Wildlife Mgmt area. Quite a backwoods drive to find the trailhead but worth the trip. Trail was very well maintained. Could see Tow path trail running parallel and also old telegraph lines still standing. Road to Hancock, MD where there are many quaint shops and nice places to sit and relax and have a picnic or find a hometown restaurant to refuel.
