C&O Canal-current conditions
A friend and I will soon (early June) depart for our first tour of the C&O Canal. We'll be starting in Cumberland, MD and riding into DC over 4 days, overnighting in hotels along the way. We'll be riding 60 miles the first day and 40 each successive day. I know what trail conditions to expect in the immediate DC Metro area, but I'm not familiar with the trail from Cumberland to Leesburg. Can anyone update me with the most current trail conditions (detours, flooding, downed trees, etc) in this stretch of the trail? I just want to confirm that 60 miles that day is realistic.
As always, thanks in advance.
