Title: C&O Canal Towpath
Post by: rootchopper on May 16, 2018, 02:39:50 pm
If you are planning on using the C&O Canal towpath this week, check with the National Park Service first. Heavy rains over an extended period are making a mess of the towpath. A short section of the canal between miles 51 (Catoctin Viaduct) and 54 (Brunswick) is closed. The Park Service is evaluating the towpath between miles 42 and 70.

These are part of the ACA Chicago to New York Route, PHIL ALT 1 section.

And it's likely to get worse as even more heavy rain in that area is predicted tomorrow through at least early Saturday. Read that the Potomac is expected to reach flood stage on Saturday.

What's the scoop, here? Did they fix the washed out bridge? Is the trail rideable? What are folks doing for a work-around?
