Stayed at the Fairfield Inn in Cumberland which is right where the C&0 Canal Towpath meets the Great Allegheny Passage. Catch a ride to the train depot in Frostburg and cruise on a light downhill mode for 16 miles. You will pass the most gorgeous country scenery and the last two miles is relatively flat. Grab a snack at the... More

We camped at the State Park campground at Ohiopyle. First day we shuttled to Boson Pa. Second day we shuttled to Frostburg. Great ride both days. I enjoyed the Frostburg ride better though. Little uphill at the start. The rest was down a little or flat. Really nice ride along the river

My husband and I love to ride the rails to trails. We ride almost every weekend between April and October. We have ridden many different trails, but this one is by far our favorite. The views are absolutely breathing! There are old tunnels you ride through along the trail and this is a very weird, different experience. It's like riding... More

Whether you are traveling from Pittsburgh to Cumberland, or just a short afternoon ride, GAP provides a great biking experience. The trail is in terrific shape and there are plenty of interesting stops along the way.

What a great experience on this fantastic jewel. Kudos to all the folks who made this a reality, the people that built it, the towns and residents that see it as an asset a a state that sees the value of tourism.

The GAP is a must for those who enjoy a relaxed, scenic trail. It is in great condition despited some heave rain in early July. We enjoyed the first 100 miles for the peace and quiet and interesting little towns we passed through (and the GREAT B&B's we stayed in). The last 50 or so McKeesport into Pittsburg were more...

The GAP is a very fun ride. We went from Pittsburgh to Cumberland. It was 160 miles of great scenery. Yeah I know that it is only 150 or so miles in reality but we had about a 7-8 mile detour misguided portion of the ride (our fault). After learning that the trail doesn't have exit markers for towns (to... More

A beautiful, scenic trail. We biked it. It goes through quaint, historic towns and is well-maintained. Compared to the C&O Canal Trail though, not a lot of places to camp.

I didn't thing very highly of the trail itself but staying in Meyersdale made the monotony of the trail well worth the trip.
