Whites Ferry Parking - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

Hiking the Chesapeake Ohio Towpath along the canal is a great way to get some fresh air and feast your eyes on Maryland's natural scenery. 

Park in the lot on Whites Ferry road and hop on the Chesapeake Ohio towpath. This is an out-and-back so you can make it as short as you want or up to 10 miles. Great for familes and dog friendly!
