Potomac Heritage Trail & C&O Canal Towpath (60 Hikes #40)

We had a great first hike earlier this month, so I'm looking forward to seeing you all on March 2.  We will start at Rosyln Metro and hike north along the Potomac Heritage Trail, cross over the chain bridge, and follow the C&O canal back south towards Georgetown.

The entire hike is a 9.3 mile loop, or 4-5 hours of hiking according to the book.

If the weather is exceptionally nice, there is an option to stop at Fletcher's Boathouse for some kayaking, otherwise, we will continue to Georgetown for food and drinks.  

FYI - The minimal fee goes to the costs of keeping up the meetup (which has a monthly cost), with any excess going to snacks and/or drinks to share at a later event.

    For those taking bets on whether I would get home from NY tonight ... nope ... return flight was cancelled before I even left DC. Oh well ;)

    Another great hike and, once again, we finished just before the bad weather showed up. Thanks Gabby!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
