C and O trail is awesome for biking. From DC to Cumberland MD the trail is flat with very little grade, historical, and full of natural beauty. Lock houses along the way, like this one are now able to be rented. Most are just minimal...More

Lockhouse has been beautifully restored down to the quaint furnishings. Easy towpath access and river view from here too. Nice family outing.
