Hancock officials discussing trail's link to tourism

December 12, 2008|By DAVE McMILLION

HANCOCK - Hancock officials are talking about ways to capitalize on tourism business from the C&O Canal Towpath and the Great Allegheny Passage.

The C&O Canal is now connected to the Great Allegheny Passage, a 10-foot wide trail that runs from Cumberland, Md., to Pittsburgh, and towns in Pennsylvania have benefited from tourism on the Great Allegheny Passage, officials have said.

A woman who has worked in the tourism business on the Great Allegheny Passage told Williamsport Town Council members earlier this week that towns can perform assessments to gauge their readiness to benefit from tourism from the trails.

Council members said Wednesday night that although they have done much work on tourism associated with the towpath, they believe the assessments would be good for them.
