Construction of Chesapeake and Ohio Canal began in late 1790’s as the young Nation was expanding westward. However, the Canal never played an important transportation means as the railroad was introduced. Today, National Park Service maintains two short reaches of Canal including locks in Georgetown and Great Falls area for tourists and the 200+ miles of original tow path from Washington to Cumberland, MD for hikers and bikers. The fresh leaves produce such lush green with beautiful reflection along the Canal this time of the year.
