One of the quieter 10-mile stretches on the entire towpath still has two important points to note. First is arguably the best campsite on the entire trail at Huckleberry Hill. It’s proximity to Brunswick and Harpers Ferry, plus the spacing for those doing the trail in three roughly 60-mile days means it’s a perfect spot to pitch a tent or hang a hammock. Second is the Antietam Aqueduct, which is yet another of the stone monoliths that greet you from time to time on the towpath.

You’re a few miles (2ish to be exact…ish)  to Shepherdstown, WV. If it’s time for a break, consider riding on and checking it out.
