Review of Maryland's C&O park

Located off of Clara Barton Parkway in Maryland, this park is a feast to the eyes. The park appears to have entrances in Virginia and Maryland which seem equally good. Entrance fee is $5 for vehicles. You can park, take a walk or bike along the river with the kids or have a small picnic. The historic C&O canal runs side by side and you can also learn about its history.

Potomac is no Niagra. However, the park does pack a lot of punch with some falls, rapids, water gushing at high speeds, good views and occasionally a canoer can be seen bobbing up and down the rushing river.
