Hiking and biking along the towpath are excellent ways to see the park. Hiker-Biker Campsites are located from Swains Lock to Cumberland. Several park areas have interpretive trails and other hiking opportunities.
Bicycle riding is permitted only on the towpath. The surface of the towpath is for the most part an even hard-packed dirt trail. The towpath can be very muddy following heavy rain. Bicyclists should carry tools for repairs.
