Fort Frederick

Fort Frederick sits just off the C&O Canal near Four Locks, where we spent the night at Lockhouse 49. This location is close to the location where the Western Maryland Rail Trail parallels the C&O. We chose to continue on the C&O rather than ride the 21 mile paved WMRT. Our goal was the ride the C&O so we continued along the dirt C&O trail.

Fort Frederick was built in 1758 and has a nice stone wall protecting the barracks. One of the situations with cycle touring is that sites of interest are not always available during the right hours. The museum was closed and we had the entire park to ourselves (other than one couple we suspected were having a private rendezvous).
