The Little Tonoloway Boat Ramp is located in Hancock, Maryland, at Mile 124.4 on the C&O Canal towpath. See the Boat Ramps web page for an interactive location map.

NOTE: Sections of the towpath, locks and other historical structures, trails, campgrounds, picnic areas, boat ramps, and visitor centers are constantly being closed due to damage and/or repair. When planning an adventure within Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park, make sure the areas you plan to visit are open by checking the National Park Service’s official Current Park Conditions web page.


The Little Tonoloway Boat Ramp (aka the Hancock Boat Ramp) launches into the Potomac River at the confluence of the Potomac and Little Tonoloway Creek. There is a picnic area and restroom next to the ramp.

Like all boat ramps within Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park, there is no usage fee.
