This was my second time on this trail. This time started in Bethesda at great parking lot near the metro - parking free on weekends. Biked down to waterfront in Georgetown and back. I'd recommend starting in Georgetown as trail inclines up towards Maryland and it's an easy coasting ride most of the way back the whole way. Fletchers Boat House is great pit stop to and from just off the trail with restrooms. Great info provided. Thanks.
Rode CCT on Jan 2, 2003 as an after-lunch ride; day was cloudy, but trail's easy grade makes for the perfect exercise ride.
Rode about 10 miles, from downtown Bethesda (where I work) to Fletcher's Boat House, where trail parallels the C&O Canal - from an urban setting to a quiet, park setting. Very relaxing, and necessary after all of the holiday celebrations! A great way to burn a few lunch time calories!
