About the Area
- Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park
The C&O Canal and the Great Falls Tavern Visitor Center is located only steps away from Rockwood. Stop by the Visitor Center to learn about the canal’s history and take a ride along the canal in a boat pulled by mules. If you aren’t into history you can still enjoy the park with a hike on the towpaths.
- Great Falls National Park
Great Falls National Park is just across the street from Rockwood. It’s about a 30 minute hike to reach the falls from the Maryland side, but if you are interested in visiting the Falls from the Virginia side you will need to drive.
