Western Maryland Rail TrailLittle Pool was part of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal which connected Cumberland to Georgetown and ran parallel to the Potomac River. The principal cargo hauled on the canal heading east was coal. Westbound boats hauled various cargoes such as furniture, produce and fertilizer. The canal operated until the flood of 1924 forced its abandonment.
