Spring Gap

Intro - Slide 18

The WM passes through a rocky cut and passes a C&O Canal lockhouse high up on the bank above Rt. 51 and the canal. Here west to North Branch is still owned by the C&O Canal but was largely removed in the 1980's when the road was widened. Today only a 2-3ft. wide trail is all that remains. A retaining wall would need to be built to construct a safe trail.
