Mile 124.4 - When you reach Hancock, follow the main road to the first light (Pennsylvannia Ave) and take a left to reach the canal. There's a parking lot and boat ramp. This short stretch of road is like an oceanfront. The tan building is a bike shop (C&O Bike) and the one next to it is Pathfinder's Variety. These two and the other shops nearby sell ice cream, soda, bicycles, bait and rent canoes and bicycles. It looks like one of the most fun places on the canal.
