Highlights and Amenities of the C&O Canal National Historical Park
If this is your first time visiting the C&O Canal National Historical Park, you’ve come to the right place! Below is everything you need to know as you plan your trip.
The C&O Canal National Historical Park is a long, skinny Park that stretches 184.5 miles from Georgetown in Washington DC to Cumberland, MD. There are many entrance points along the length of the canal, and all of them are free except for the Great Falls Tavern entry point.
