    Explore the man-made wonders of the C&O Canal, as well as natural beauty of spring along the Potomac River, guided by writer and local historian Garrett Peck. Highlights include the Monocacy Aqueduct, the canal town of Williamsport, the Paw Paw Tunnel, and an overnight stay in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, site of America’s first spa. Mike High's C&O Canal Companion is a hybrid of Hahn's and the NPS publication. Half of it is historical, the other half is a towpath guide. The towpath guide is not as detailed as Hahn's (nothing is!) and I've heard it suggested that this book makes a better biking guide and Hahn's is a better hiking guide.

    The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal (C & O Canal) begins in Washington DC in Georgetown, where it was once used to transport goods to the nation's capital, and stretches miles to Cumberland, Maryland. Today, the canal is a national historic park and the towpath serves as a prime destination for outdoor recreation. Enjoy the following photos and get a glimpse of the C & O Canal. SHEPHERDSTOWN — What do we really know about the C&O Canal? Is it likely that secrets about the canal are waiting to be unearthed today? These and other questions are.

    The C & O Canal is easily accessible from Georgetown and almost immediately gets you out of the city. The towpath allows for pedestrians, bicyclists, and runners. The canal intermittently has water in it; the towpath periodically has views of the Potomac/5(84). Hahn, Thomas F.: Towpath Guide To The C & O Canal Georgetown (Tidelock) to Cumberland. Sheperdstown, WV: American Canal and Transportation Center, Sixth Edition. Fine in heavy, printed, paper wraps over an adhesive binding. An octavo measuring 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches with black text on the spine and red and black text on the front panel.
