Cushwa Basin

Williamsport to Jordan Junction Campsite and beyond

Start Mile: 99.8
End Mile: 103
Time: 3 hours
When: Morning 1/7/06

Directions: Where route 11 crosses the Potomac is Williamsport. Right off of 11 is a visitor's center with plenty of parking.

Williamsport is a popular entry point to the C&O Canal. There is a visitor's center as well as a boat launching ramp and a soccer field. This stretch is full of walkers, bikers, and joggers.

We were here later than I wanted. At first I thought of heading to Neck road to walk there but I'm not sure where there is access. We took our time and checked out some of the paths to the river from the trail. The walk was a bit long as Buck napped all afternoon when we returned home.

There was much evidence of beaver activity to the north of the water treatment plant. We didn't spot any beavers but we did get to see a small army of squirrels.
