GAP Trail

Not only is the C&O canal towpath still a "thing" here in the Maryland/DC area.. I will add the C&O canal now meets the 150-mile GAP Trail in Cumberland, Maryland. It is therefore now possible to ride a bike from Washington to Pittsburgh on these two trails.

C&O Canal

For those of you not familiar with the Maryland/DC area: the C&O Canal site is still alive and well. It is now a 180-mile long national park, with the old tow path (where the mules walked to tow the boats) converted to a bicycle/hiking trail. It runs from Cumberland, Md. to Georgetown (DC) along the Potomac River, and is just one the best places in the country!
