There have been a number of car break-ins lately at the trail access point under the bridge. Don't leave valuables in your car!

Posted 2007 - may still apply. Take the necessary precautions wherever you park on the C&O.

Keep all valuables out of sight (even small change). Lock your valuables in your trunk. Don't be an easy target.
