North Branch Potomac River Water Trail
The Potomac River Water Trail North Branch in Allegany County: Westernport, MD to Cumberland, MD is a three-map set depicting the North Branch of the Potomac River in Western Maryland. This map set covers approximately 32 miles and shows public access sites, facilities, points of interest and historical and cultural information. The maps come in a zip-closure plastic pouch and are printed on waterproof, tear-proof paper. Developed as a joint project between the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (MD DNR), the National Park Service, the Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin (ICPRB), and the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, the maps highlight access points on both sides of the river and include information on support facilities such as restrooms, camping and fishing sites, as well as picnic and parking areas.
The DNR also has inexpensive maps of a number of the key rivers. Order the map sets from the Maryland DNR at this link
