I left my car in Williamsport, Maryland and with a rental car hauled my bike to Pittsburgh and pedaled back via the 150-mile GAP trail and 80 miles of the C&O canal. The GAP is a wonderful experience. The trail follows old railroad beds along rivers with a gentle grade (west bound from Cumberland is steeper). The surface is crushed... More

This was our 2nd biking trip, but first one in the spring. We biked from Frostburg to Meyersdale, Pa. We're not in bad shape, but we don't bike all the time. It was tough climb for the first 8 miles until we reached the Big Savage Mountain tunnel. Then it got easier as we made our way to Meyersdale. The... More

Had some free time during out visit and decided to hike part of the trail. It is beautiful. The trail is well maintained, we felt safe, even in the evening.

Rode it and the C&O trial together. Like it until we started getting near the end. Trail runs thru small towns and peoples back yards.

If you like to ride bikes or just walk/hike, you will really enjoy this one. Lots of shady spots on a hot day. The trail is the old B&O Railway easily accessible from many points and has lots to offer. The up hill grade is doable even for beginners and the downhill grade is peacefully easy. From Cumberland the trail... More

This was one of several planned stops in this area and proved to be a very nice ride. With a novice rider (8 years old) along we didn't make it far, bu enjoyed the river (which you ride beside the whole way), th varied terrain, th long bridges, and high bluffs. Definitely will be back to Do More!

I have ridden on many sections of this trail and have never been disappointed. So many sections with such beautiful scenery...start in Meyersdale with the Salisbury Viaduct, ride over the Keystone Viaduct, go by the Eastern Continental Divide, pedal through Big Savage Tunnel, and take in the views on the other side. Breathtaking! One warning -- a day spent riding... More

While we have never done the "through trip" we have done every inch over the years. The first section completed -- Ohiopyle to Confluence--is an easy 10 miles with lots of places at either end to enjoy the river and have a good meal. Connellsville to Ohiopyle takes you along the section of Yough most favored by white water rafters.... More

Rode from Deal to West Newton. Trail surface was great - hats off to the volunteers who make this possible. Friendliest town - Rockwood! A gentleman sitting out on his porch even allowed me to use his phone to call my wife for my daily check-in, since there is pretty poor cell phone service there. Best value - the Rockwood... More
