Ride Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Washington D.C. via the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal (C&O) Towpath and connect MOCO singletrack to make a nice long, overnight loop. This will be a fully self-supported ride and you will need to bring your own food and shelter (tent or bivy).

Follow the C&O from Georgetown and head out towards Darnestown. Then take a quick jaunt on country roads and jump onto the MOCO Epic single track that winds through various state parks and shoots right back onto the C&O Canal. Camping in Little Bennett Regional Park for the night (you are responsible for your own camping reservations).

On Sunday morning, we'll ride down through the Magruder Branch Stream Valley Unit and Great Seneca Stream Valley Units on our way back to the C&O. Looking for a group of 4-8 to make this ride!
