Resumption of Volunteer Activities

Hello Level Walkers,

As you have no doubt heard, the government shutdown has ended. The National Park Service has advised that we can resume volunteer activities. NPS staff will be busy over the next few days as they resume normal operations.

As you return to the towpath, be watchful of any conditions the park may need to be aware of. You can report any hazards you encounter to

Also, be aware that areas may be closed or access restricted in certain areas. Refer to for up-to-date status before visiting the park.

Thanks for your support!
