Allegany County is situated in the heart of Western Maryland equidistant from Baltimore, MD, Washington, D.C. and Pittsburgh, PA. It is crossed by Interstate 68 and the main lines of CSX Transportation, providing excellent access to major markets in the East and Midwest.
The Visitor Center is located along with the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park in the historic 1913 Western Maryland Railway Station. Part of Canal Place and adjacent to the Washington Street Historical District, the Visitor Center is only yards away from the 184.5-mile marker on the C&O Canal towpath and from the beginning of the Great Allegheny Passage, a 150-mile rail-trail leading to Pittsburgh, PA.
Stop by our Visitor Center for all the information you need before beginning your hunting or fishing trip.
