It’s an excellent place to release a lot of stress. The sound of the water at this time is so serine and calming. It was the season of the small purple flower and was gorgeous. The staff there are very friendly and helpful.

On a beautiful fall day this was the perfect walk. We walked for a couple of miles up via the tow path and back via the river. Beautiful scenery and bird life. Only problem is that the canal is being repaired so not much water.

The C&O Canal is great for taking strolls along this waterway. There are plenty of bird life to watch. Early Saturday mornings are the best time to go.
