Sunday Paddle - Violettes Lock-GW Canal Loop

George Washington canal - this is a Class I-II trip. We will cross the Potomac to the George Washington canal on the Virginia side, run the canal, come back across the Potomac and return to Violettes Lock via either the flatwater C&O canal or attaining up Seneca Breaks, thus avoiding the need for a shuttle. Total trip length is about three miles. If there are ten or more paddlers we will endeavor to divide into groups. In order to facilitate trip planning please be sure to advise trip coordinator Wayne McDaniel at or 443 542 8779 if you are planning to join. New folks to our trips, please read CCA's Covid Tips (on this Trips Tab under Trip Guidelines.) Also American Whitewater's Safety Code in the CCA Handbook (not the annual Roster) pp. 18-25 - or on their website at If you would like to be included on the mailing list for Sunday Trips please send and email to
