Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Dog Policy
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park is Dog Friendly
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park covers over 184 miles, and preserves the canal that helped transport coal, lumber, and agricultural products to market. The park offers a number of opportunities for recreation and viewing history and nature.
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park is mostly dog friendly. Dogs are allowed on most trails while on a leash, but they are not allowed inside in any buildings.
Dogs are allowed on many trails while on a leash no longer than 6'. They are not allowed on Billy Goat Trail section A (which would be very difficult for dogs to traverse anyway) and on the boardwalk to Great Falls.
