The Great Falls run between two national parks: The C&O Canal National Historic Park is located in Maryland. The Great Falls Park is in Virginia.
E-biking is limited to a few gravel trails inside the park as the Great Falls Park is mostly a hikers' destination. NPS-regulations state that e-bikes are prohibited where traditional bicycles are prohibited. Trails are marked where (e-)biking is allowed.
As usual, please check the latest regulations before heading out as we do not provide legal advice on this website.
Gregory discovered e-biking after 20 years of overseas work as project manager for the World Bank and USAID. He writes about e-mobility and e-biking in the DMV area, and loves the outdoors (white water kayaking, hiking and biking). He lives with his wife, Janet and Queenie the cat, in Washington DC. He recently e-biked 4,685+ miles across America and raised $180,000 for a charity.
Favorite e-bike: Riese & Muller Super Charger Class 3 touring e-bike.
