Allegany, Garrett and Washington counties.
If there’s a touch of Indiana Jones in you, this is the perfect place for your next adventure.
Western Maryland is where you’ll find picturesque mountains that are perfect for hiking and white-water rapids
just waiting to be tackled by daring rafters. Deep Creek Lake, the state’s biggest manmade body of water, welcomes boaters and water
skiers in warm weather; Wisp, Maryland’s ski resort, welcomes skiers and tubers in the winter months.
If you prefer to step back in
time rather than taking a walk on the wild side, explore such sites as the C&O Canal and Antietam National Battlefield.
Biking Along the C&O Canal – On July 4, 1828, President John Quincy Adams broke ground for the 184.5-mile Chesapeake and Ohio Canal that now extends from Georgetown in Washington, DC to Cumberland, Maryland. Bikers along the towpath can view original structures including locks, lockhouses and aqueducts.
