This website is not affiliated with the State of nor any of its departments or divisions, and is not responsible for any aspect of trail management. We are simply cyclists, runners, and software developers who wanted to build the ultimate web site for C&O Canal Trail information.
The trail is a far safer place to cycle, run, or hike than a typical street. But there are inherent dangers in these activities, and persons must undertake these activities with the proper attitude toward safety. In particular, the following features of the C&O Canal Trail could be dangerous:
The trail crosses or uses streets and highways in some areas, where vehicles travel in excess of 55 miles per hour.
Vehicles traveling at high speeds may approach more quickly than expected.
A lack of proper attitude toward safety while using the trail could result in injury or death.
Extra care must be taken when traveling with children, particularly around the hazards listed above.
The trail passes through some residential or commercial areas where pedestrians use the trail like a sidewalk. These pedestrians often are not accustomed to bike trails and not alert for cyclists. Proceed with caution where pedestrians my be present.
Do not swim in the rivers. Do not walk across frozen bodies of water in the winter.
Cycling, running, and hiking are physical activities requiring exertion. Do not attempt to use the trail if you are not in adequate physical condition.
We will never sell, rent, or in any way convey email addresses to any outside parties. If you sign up for Forum Alerts, we will only use your address for emailing the alerts.
