Paw Paw Tunnel of the C&O Canal requires the temporary closure

FEB 16 2017

Paw Paw Map

The Paw Paw Tunnel of the C&O Canal requires the temporary closure of the north (downstream) tunnel portal and towpath. The project will involve assessing, removing or "scaling" loose and unstable rock, and then pinning solid rock to increase stability above the towpath. We are excited that this work will begin in late February! During the project a portion of the towpath at the north or downstream end of the tunnel will be closed to all users. A less steep bypass trail will be signed directing thru-bikers and hikers to the top of Tunnel Hill then connecting with the existing trail. Hikers will be able to continue to use the entire Tunnel Hill Trail during the project. Please see the attached FAQ for the project.
