I d tried driving from Rockville Maryland to lock 56. Somehow waze took my down a one lane steep road which was frightening. I turned around at approximately.7 tenths of a mile down an was so thrilled no one was coming from the other direction can someone suggest where I can drive an park at that isn’t so frightening so I can see locks 53-56. I don’t mind walking around five -6 miles round trip

Looks like there is a road next to the trail near lock 53. Seems like you could park on the side of the road. Similar spots may exist for the other locks.
