C&O Canal Update – July 8

Hello Level Walkers,

Here’s the latest park status.


Dear Volunteers,
This past holiday weekend was a busy one, and park staff are working hard to keep up with the higher than normal visitation. As a reminder, when you are in the park and see problems, issues, or hazards that need immediate attention, the best way to report them is to contact Park Dispatch.
Here are the Dispatch numbers:
Non-emergency: 301-714-2235
Emergency: 866-677-6677
The C&O Canal Trust will be holding volunteer trash clean-up projects this month. For more information on dates & locations and to register, visit the Canal Pride Days webpage.
The footbridge across the Potomac River that connects C&O Canal NHP and Harpers Ferry NHP is now OPEN. For a complete list of conditions, please visit the park website.
Thanks and stay well!
