If you enjoy fishing, riding bikes, taking walks, or photography come here. You can take a boat ride, watch a video, and even buy a book about Williamsport MD.

I bike on the canal whenever possible, usually embark Williamsport. We are so blessed to have this towpath in our backyard. People walk, jog, bike, fish along the way. Always a perfect antidote to daily craziness.

I've done runs on/near the trail and walked pieces of the trail. It's well maintained and offers gorgeous scenery. I usually see some type of wild life while I'm there too--turtles, birds, etc.plenty of markers and historic descriptors to bring the history into perspective.
