Western Maryland Railtrail

I took a break from Fixing Frederick this Sunday to take the kids out to a ride I'd been meaning to do for a while. We just picked up Number One Son's new Trek bike, and the Western Maryland Railtrail seemed like a good place to test it out. The trail is a nice flat trail that runs for about 20 miles from Big Pool, Maryland to west of Hancock, MD. It is pretty much parallel to the C&O Canal, but is a paved surface. We did about 4 miles of the trail before he started to get uncomfortable, so we took a break and headed back. The princess stoker was along for the ride on the back of the tandem and also had a great time. Next time we'll head to the canal and down to Ft. Frederick first, and then do a few miles on the trail.
