We are considering biking to Rockville, Maryland and taking the Amtrak back to Cumberland in April. From what I can tell, it's 9 miles from the C&O to the Amtrak on a busy street. Has anyone ridden this, and if so, how scary is it?

While I looked briefly at leaving the C&O Towpath to ride up into Rockville, I did not follow through as my itinerary ultimately changed. If you do ride that segment, please let us know what route you take and how it went.

Does Amtrak have bike service at Rockville?

Yes. Rockville is the last/first stop on the Capital Limited Amtrak train approaching/leaving Washington, DC.
