This month, the Wellness Walk will take place at Big Slackwater. The group will meet at 10:00 am at the Big Slackwater Boat Ramp on the Canal. We will walk the towpath back to Dam #4 and return for a picnic. Bring your own food!
It’s a very pretty walk. There’s parking at the ramp and several picnic tables.
Please wear comfortable walking shoes. Please also bring water and remember to stay hydrated while walking. Friendly dogs are welcome if they remain on leash, per the C&O Canal National Historical Park regulations.
