It was a sore amid the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park's towpath. The Big Slackwater section of the popular 184.5-mile hiking and biking trail was closed after flooding in 1996 and deteriorated into a treacherous ridge overrun with brambles, thistles and poisonous plants. The 2.7-mile stretch along the Potomac River near Williamsport was the sole disruption in the path that runs from Cumberland, Md., to Washington, D.C. Towpath visitors were detoured off the trail and onto a dangerous route with no shoulders following 4.5 miles along Dam 4, Dellinger and Avis Mill roads.
