Nature Camps Teen Adventure Support Material
Overview: The C&O Canal Towpath runs 185 miles from Cumberland, MD along the Potomac River Valley into Washington, D.C. The Teen Adventure teens and Counselors will bike ~85 miles over 5 days from Williamsport, MD to Great Falls outside of Washington, D.C. The route gives the group the opportunity to take short side trails to the Antietam National Battlefield, Harpers Ferry, and Great Falls and much more. Along the way there are plenty of places to stop by the river for a swim or sit at a picnic table by the river for lunch, or maybe even a deli just off the trail. Also there are campsites along the path about every 5 miles which allows for a flexible schedule for the group to decide their own pace. Everyone carries all of their own personal gear (clothes, sleeping bag and pad, snacks, etc.) strapped to racks on their bikes. There will also be two pull-behind trailer carts for everyone’s group gear (tents, dinner and breakfast, pots, etc.).
