Scenes from the C&O Biking with the men of Calvary Chapel of Fredericktown PA

Starting out fresh at mile 184.5 in Cumberland, Md., at the monument to the C&O Canal mule drivers

Iron Mountain lock and lock house, mile 175.5

Pawpaw Tunnel, mile 155.2 Yes, there is a light at the end of it, but take your own for the parts in the middle.

The railroad tunnel at mile 151.2 is equally dark

Meals at restaurants mean less food to carry…this is Bill’s Place in Little Orleans, mile 140.9

Hiker/biker campsite at Indigo Neck Mile 140.2 Other meals are prepared in camp. Foil cooking means no dishes or pans to carry.

Swimming and fishing in the Potomac at Indigo Neck

Round Hill Cement Factory Mile 127.4

Under the Devil’s Eyebrow Mile 127.24

A stop at Fort Frederick, mile 112, should take care of any disciplinary problems!

This old log cabin is near Lock 4 at mile 108.64

This railroad lift bridge is one of 100 bridges constructed by W. Bollman, the inventor of the iron truss bridge. Only two still exist. Williamsport Mile 99.3

The group takes time for a little spelunking at Dillingers Cave, mile 92.11

The trail’s a little rough near McMahon’s Mill, mile 88.9

There’s plenty of history along the bike trail, including this Confederate soldier’s grave…..

....and this footnote to history that the Civil War could have ended at Falling Waters because of flooding on the Potomac if Gen. Meade had pursued the rebels after the battle at Gettysburg.
