I did a nice ride on the C&O Canal Towpath today; about 16 miles out and then 16 back for a total of about 32 miles. I started at Noland’s Ferry (which is as far as I got last season) and rode out to the bridge that connects the towpath with Harper’s Ferry, WV. I took a couple of pictures while I was resting at the half-way point. The first shows the rail lines going into a tunnel in a big, imposing rock. The second shows the former canal with the towpath on the right.
