  • This is a very interesting place. The staff at the visitors center was very helpful and also interesting. The C&O Canal towpath is very nice for riding bike or walking. The restored aqueduct is also very nice looking. If you are close by, and have some time, definitely stop in and check things out for yourself. There is a decent amount of parking available.
  • The wait for construction to be completed was definitely worth it! The new bridge is beautiful, and as always it's a great place to bring dogs and/or watch the sunset over the river. I didn't realize that they took away access to the trail on both sides of the current visitors center (the right side by the bathrooms no longer goes over to the C&O trail), however there's a nice new elevated walkway to get over to the river/trail side.
