|Monocacy Aqueduct closest to the parking lot.|
The aqueduct, built between 1829 and 1833, spans the Monocacy for 438 feet. Today, one side of the aqueduct has a fence for walking, while the other for the more adventurous does not. For the bicyclists the middle part is opened.
Near the parking lot are the remains of a grain storage area. I've often wondered what those old ruins were.

|The river has flooded part of the end of the point.|
For those bikers looking to make their way down there, there are a few large pot holes, the bridge over the railroad tracks is wood, though easy to go over when dry, and the railroad tracks that cross the road are in bad shape. It's not difficult to get to the aqueduct, but there are some things to watch out for.
