Western Maryland Rail Trail
Newly extended by four miles! Twenty-eight mile-long trail runs from Big Pool along the Potomac River and the C&O Canal Towpath, past Sideling Hill, to Little Orleans. Paved trail popular for cycling, in-line skating and walking. The WMRT begins one-half mile west of historic Fort Frederick State Park in Big Pool; from there, the trail system winds through rolling farmland, woodlands and rural towns.
