The Beautiful Fall Foliage of the C&O Canal

We are in the peak fall foliage season here in Maryland, and we have collected some of our favorite photos of the canal bursting with color!

Where possible, we have linked the photos’ descriptions to their locations in the C&O Canal National Historical Park so you can go out and see the beautiful fall color for yourself!

Take your camera and then enter our photo contest. And be sure to download our mobile app, the C&O Canal Explorer, to help you navigate around the Park!
