Registration is closed

Please join us for an easy 7-mile (round trip) ramble along the C&O Canal towpath from Brunswick, MD, to Harpers Ferry, WVA, and back. Little ones are welcome to bring bicycles...and we'll understand if you don't do the whole 7 miles.

This is a lot of fun for everyone, and a wide gravel path makes the going easy. There are trains to see, side trails to the Potomac River to explore, and signs of spring to enjoy, including a search for ramps.

They were there last year so we'll probably find them again this year.

Here's the details: Meet at the Brunswick MARC Station, 100 South Maple Street, at 11 a.m. Here's information on the station: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brunswick_station_(Maryland)

The hike will take 3-4 hours, depending on how much we ramble and whether there are youngsters along. 

Carpools: meet at the Shady Grove Metro Kiss and Ride (on the east side of the tracks) at 10 a.m.
