Cycling the C&O Canal

Contact the National Park Service to order a printed map before your trip. I always bring a printed map because its a great tool to calculate distances between towns and services. 

The national park service makes it easy to order a printed map.  Drop them a note with the contact us form and they will mail you a map.

It's recommended to carry a printed trail map because mobile phone service is unreliable. Printed maps are available for free at any Visitor Center along the trail. Need to see a map now? Click below to view the interactive map.
