Biking

September 19, 2005

  • The C&O Canal and Antietam National Battlefield offer leisurely trails and pamphlets with tour information.

  • The Western Maryland Rail Trail, a flat asphalt paved path reclaimed from the former Western Maryland Railroad, is 23 miles long, running from Big Pool west past Hancock to Pearre.

    The trail begins one-half mile west of Fort Frederick State Park and follows the former rail line through Hancock. The flat trail is especially suited to families and novice cyclists.

  • Bikers looking for scenic roads to travel may enjoy Sharpsburg Pike and Downsville Pike.

  • The Cumberland Valley Cycling Club conducts rides throughout the county for cyclists of all levels. See the group's weekly schedule on Web site www.ghostburn.com/cvcc/.
