C&O Canal Northbound Excursion to Antietam National Battlefield, Route 3 Map.

Formatted for download as a PDF document (not part of a GPS system).


This 30-page guide is for bicyclists who are riding north on the C&O Canal Towpath and want a safe, convenient, and educational excursion through Antietam National Battlefield. Route 3 provides detailed maps and instructions for selecting between two options for exiting (and returning to) the C&O Canal Towpath. It also includes high-level maps of Western Maryland, the geography around Sharpsburg, and about twenty miles of towpath. Bonus pages include detour maps, photos, and historical summaries.

It is important to note that Route 3 includes only brief coverage of a 9.2-mile tour of Antietam National Battlefield. For a complete tour, please consider adding the Bike Antietam Route 1 Map to your shopping cart.  (There is very little duplication between these two map sets, because their purposes are different).

The Route 3 map is an optional digital companion to the much larger 208-page paperback guidebook by Sue Thibodeau, Bicycling Antietam National Battlefield: The Cyclist’s Civil War Travel Guide (Victor, NY: Civil War Cycling, 2020). ISBN 978-1-7326038-1-3. Available on Amazon (paid link).
