After a morning ferry ride back across the Potomac, begin your last day of riding on the C&O Canal Towpath. The trail here is well-traveled and highlights include Great Falls Park (a good lunch stop), Georgetown, and Washington, D.C.! Your destination is Mile Marker 0 (we provide mapping and directions since it can be a tricky marker to find) and the end of an incredible journey. Meet your shuttle at the Thompson Boat Center (where Mile 0 is located) for your transfer back to Pittsburgh.
OPTIONAL: Spend an extra day or two in Washington, D.C. and explore the many bike trails that follow the Potomac, bike around the National Mall, visit some museums, or even take the Mount Vernon Trail all the way to Alexandria and George Washington’s Mt Vernon plantation. We’re happy to help provide suggestions, reservations, and planning.
