Western Maryland is the portion of the U.S. state of Maryland that traditionally consists of Washington, Allegany, and Garrett counties, with western portions of Frederick County also associated with the area. The region is bounded by the Mason-Dixon line to the north, Preston County, West Virginia to the west, and the Potomac River to the south. There is dispute over the eastern boundary of Western Maryland. For most residents of the Baltimore-Washington area, everything west of Frederick city is considered Western Maryland. However, the people of the more mountainous and isolated Allegany County and Garrett County consider Sideling Hill the boundary between Western Maryland and what they refer to as "down-state." Western Maryland is much more rural than the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area, where most of the state's population lives; even Frederick and Washington counties are less urbanized than places closer to Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. There are relatively few towns larger than 10,000 people. Western Maryland is noted for its idyllic rural landscapes in its eastern portion and the mountainous terrain. The area is generally regarded as part of Appalachia, with the extreme western section having more of an affinity to Pittsburgh than the rest of the state. Washington, Allegany, and Garrett counties are part of the Appalachian Regional Commission. Garrett County, the state's westernmost county, largely aligns itself through marketing and sports with West Virginia and the Pittsburgh area rather than Maryland. The four most western counties of Maryland, from eastern Frederick County to western Garrett County, span approximately 120 miles (190 km).

This section of the canal is dominated by two large lakes, Big Pool and Little Pool. The first was formed by taking advantage of a natural ridge to create a lake. Instead of having to dig a trench, all engineers had to do was cut through the ridge and let the river flood the low area behind it. Little Pool was formed by routing the towpath onto an island. Both these areas are excellent locations for birding and other wildlife. Beyond Big Pool the canal is lined with cornfields. Watch for deer in the evenings here. Just past Big Pool Ernstville Road is crossed in the community of Ernstville. A sign here directs hikers to the Western Maryland Rail Trail 100 yards to the north. That trail will parallel the C&O Canal all the way to Hancock with a direct connection at the east end of Little Pool. Further on, Licking Creek Aqueduct is crossed providing the backdrop for a campsite by the same name. Just beyond, the 255 mile long Tuscarora Trail joins from the north. The two routes coincide to Hancock. Just before town the woods end and houses are passed on the berm. The trail crosses another aqueduct at Tonoloway Creek This segment ends at a footbridge just off the main street of Hancock, MD.Visit Little Pool Campground
