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

I was anxious to ride the completed trail from Pittsburgh to DC in conjunction with the C&O Canal towpath, having done it 3 other times starting from McKeesport. Although there was a lot of hoopla surrounding the completion of the trail to Pittsburgh, it's not quite there yet. Every through-rider I talked to spoke of getting lost in the first... More

This is a great rail to trail from Cumberland to Pittsburgh. Excellent trail surface and beautiful scenery as you travel. Lots of small towns to visit along the way. Camp out for the best experience.

My husband and I rode from Cumberland to Pittsburgh in late Sept. We booked our own reservations and carried our luggage on the bikes (there are luggage transfer services and we did not use them - we mailed a box of clothes to our Pittsburgh hotel). To get a jump start on the uphill part of the trail from Cumberland... More

We didn't want to deal with the hassle or expense of a shuttle so we drove to Frostburg, unloaded the bikes and took an easy-enough three day trip west to Boston and three days back to Frostburg. The trail itself is a delight, very few road crossings, a good mix of woodlands, farmlands, and charming little towns. The trail is... More

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.
