R Paul Smith Power Station

I-81 Bridge to the Cushwa Basin

Start Mile: 99.6
End Mile: 98.5
Time: 50 minutes
When: Evening 2/3/06

Directions:Route 11 to Williamsport. Parking is at the sharp turn just north of the river.

A long week needs a relaxing walk before it gets cold again. This popular spot is an easy place to take a quick walk. This is one of our standard walks. Williamsport is one of the most popular points on the western part of the canal. Whenever we need a quick bit of exercise.

My wife needed a break from work and I was fed up by 5 so we drove over to Maryland. There were few cars at the visitors center which was a surprise. It has been almost two weeks since I have taken Buck to the river so he was eager to get going.

We headed east toward the boat ramp. The bridge to the boat ramp is still being repaired so we detoured into the powerplant access road. This is well marked and there is little traffic but you still need to restrain children and pets at the cross walk.

It was just getting dark when we reached the I-81 bridge. We picked up the pace so we could get back to the truck before it was too dark. It is still a little early for after work walks at the river.
