11710 MacArthur Blvd., Great Falls Tavern Visitor Center, Potomac, MD 20854, United States

Mules stopped pulling coal barges in 1924; now bikers pass locks, lockhouses, and aqueducts while looking for bald eagles. The Monocacy Aqueduct, at milepost 42.2, has just been restored to its original grandeur, and there are trailside campsites, or you can stay at inns along the way in towns like Williamsport and Hancock. The 6.5-mile Maryland heights tral climbs to a stunning view of the Shenandoah Valley.
