The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal (“C & O Canal”) is one of my favorite spots in the DC/MD area. It operated from 1831-1924 along the Potomac River from Washington, DC to Cumberland, MD, spanning ~184.5 miles. The views are breathtaking and it is a haven for wildlife and plants. We love taking the dogs there for long walks. Every lock has unique details. Hike the Billy Goat Trail (not dog or little one friendly, however), stop in for a post hike beer or cocktail at Old Angler’s Inn, and check out Riley’s lock, a family favorite.
