Where do you recommend staying in Hancock? My top two choices are booked for my travel dates. I'm now looking at the Super 8 and the Hancock Motel now. Any thoughts? Thank you!

the Bike shop in Hancock has dormitory style bare bone accomodations that will work and are much cheaper than a hotel, if that would work for you.

C&O Bike Shop is not a bad choice. For $15 you get a towel, hot shower a bunk and a place to charge all your electronic gear. It is also walking distance to a laundromat, fast food restaurants and a grocery store. Stayed there last fall after riding all day in the rain.

I've stayed at the Super 8. It is a little further off the trail (with a little uphill grade) than the bike shop. It is an old-style motel. The room was small but clean and quiet the night I stayed there. The continental breakfast was quite austere but edible. They did have a hose to use as a bike wash which might be very useful if you're coming from Cumberland. That section of trail up to the WMRT pave trail can be very muddy if it rains or has rained recently. It is a step up from the bike shop bunk house but not that big of a step up. Both are in close proximity to Weaver's Restaurant which is my favorite place to eat in Hancock, especially if you like pie!
