The C&O Canal Towpath Trail and Great Allegheny Passage

Trail north of dam 4 ritually impassable. 6 inches mud and piles of trees and debris every 100 yds

See above avoid detour when it puts you back on trail before dam 4

Thanks Chris. I got a similar report from a rider arriving in Pittsburgh today.

How long after high water events does it typically take the Park Service to clean up the trail? Wasn't the last event over a week ago?

I suspect the mud and debris north/west of Dam 4 are the result of the high river level following the couple of days of heavy rains at the end of the first week of May.
