Sunday Paddle - Violettes Lock-GW Canal Loop

We will paddle the George Washington canal, a Class I-II trip. We will cross the Potomac to the GW canal on the Virginia side, run the canal, come back across the Potomac and return to Violettes Lock via the flat water C&O canal. Total trip length is about three miles.
