C&O Canal Trail & Great Allegheny Passage Comments
C&O surface

Loose or solid
posted Nov 29 2017 3:31PM - How’s the surface on the C&O trail for road tires?, WWWeb

Not loose, but very rough, many tree roots to watch out for.

Conditions all depend on the weather. If it is dry and has been for several days - trail is pretty firm. If it rains, then you will encounter MUD. I don't recommend riding on road tires. I rode 35c Kenda Flintridge Pros. Thinking anything smaller than a 30c isn't going to be fun.
