Lots of discussion regarding the path conditions and recent flood damage. Cycled 5/20/22 from Williamsport to HF. All good until a detour off the C&O at about MP 90 around some sort of impassable damage. After the detour the path east was a challenge with debris piles that you must climb over and some really sticky mud that is mostly impossible to ride. By Big Slackwater boat ramp it is all over and you can clean the mud off your bike in the river at the ramp. There is some trail damage further east but is really limited to washouts and bumps from the material washed away. Not the end of the world but the couple miles of mud and debris will take some time to pass and a heavy bike will be a challenge.

Thank you very much for that report as I head north and west from DC on Monday. I think the detour around MP90 is the one at McMahons Mill which has been there and is described in the NPS C&O website. Did you leave the Towpath anywhere other than there?
