The Pocket Guide to the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park has been revised and reprinted, and is now available for sale.

This handy book is a great way to track progress during a walk or ride on the towpath and determine the location of a canal feature or access point. The guide lists 580 sites and features, includes canal maps, and provides space for user notes. A laminated cover provides improved durability over the earlier editions.

This revised edition is updated with improvements to the towpath, including the restoration of Big Slackwater and the Catoctin Aqueduct. The guide also features the Canal Quarters sites and Canal Towns. It makes an excellent field reference companion to the Towpath Guide to the C&O Canal (Harpers Ferry Historical Association) or other guides.
