Culvert 82 (MP 52.5)

Towpath Detour. There is a short towpath detour around the washed out area - follow the signage off the towpath and onto a designated pathway that leads to a temporary low-water crossing across the creek. Get back onto a designated pathway that leads back up to the towpath. Follow signage and dismount bikes before crossing. During high water events, the crossing may be under water and unsafe to cross

When high water occurs, please contact Shepherdstown Pedal and Paddle at 304-876-3000 or River and Trail Outfitters at 301-834-9950 to arrange for a shuttle around the detour. The Canal Towns Partnership, acting through C&O Canal Trust, is no longer offering free shuttle services. The park is working on a long-term solution.

Towpath Detour (Towpath Below Dargan Bend Boat Ramp MP 64)

Due to a washout half a mile below the boat ramp. The pedestrian footbridge has been relocated 100 feet upstream from its original location along the towpath. Follow a designated pathway from the towpath, across the footbridge and stream, and back onto the towpath.

Big Slackwater: Dam #4 - Burnside Farm ( Milepost 84.4 - MP 90.0)
