C and O Canal Rails to Trails
Before leaving the campground in Hancock, MD - we tried another bicycle assault on the trail thru the woods. This time we were successful at reaching the paved bicycle path. As expected, it was only a hundred yards or so from where we gave up and turned around the evening before. Yes! This is my kind of bicycling. We will seek out more Rails to Trails on our journey. According to the website, there are 1,359 of them. We rode about 5 miles into town and met these guys who had been biking and camping along the trail for several days. They pulled this homemade trailer to carry all their camping supplies. Then we headed back. That last mile is a killer.
