Plan a full day (or two) for your visit to the Western Maryland Rail Trail, a 22-mile paved route that will take you through several eras of American history. You can access this trail from many points, but the main trailhead is in the quaint town of Hancock (population 1,750). Stop here for food, drinks, or antiques shopping; stay the night or simply wander around the historical downtown, which was once Maryland’s frontier and was frequently visited by George Washington, among other notables.
