What follows is a continuation of hikwe-biker sites, moving northwesterly along the C&O Canal toward Cumberland. North Mountain is nicely wild, with little evidence of humanity, either modern or historical. After Antietam and Killiansburg Cave comes the Horseshoe Bend hiker-biker site (Mile 79.2). This area is closest to the city of Hagerstown, where you can get whatever supplies you need. From Hagerstown, take MD 65 south from I-70 about 8 miles to a right at Taylors Landing Road to the boat launch. Horseshoe Bend is 1.7 miles downstream.
