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.

Great trail, lots of wildlife and beautiful trees and flowers. We went over quite a few bridges with nice views. The 30 mile ride was pretty effortless due to the slight downhill all the way.

Though we ride a lot, this was the first multi-day bike ride my brother-in-law and I had done, and we had a great time. Consider heading east from Pittsburgh to experience the final 20 downhill miles into Cumberland. We did it in three days, staying at the Linden Hall motel near Dawson (watch out for the big hill off the... More

Loved this trail! Took 4 days, enjoyed all of it. It's extremely well groomed, especially compared to the C&O Canal Tow Path.

Bicycling a multi-day trip up a trail off the road system on a quality trail had always been a dream of my wife and I. With kids gone from the home, more vacation time from work available and a good airline friendly tandem bike, we researched Rail-Trails and chose the GAP trail. We can't say enough of how great this... More

Parked our Jeep at the Cumberland, MD trailhead and our RV at Deal, PA. We rode twenty-five miles down hill through gorgeous country side with many opportunities to scenic view pictures along the way. Savage Tunnel was thrilling to ride through. Very clean and well lit. The entire 25 miles was litter free. Nice visitor center in Cumberland. We rode... More

The Great Allegheny Passage Trail runs 150 miles from Cumberland, MD to Pittsburgh, PA. Finished in 2013 the ride is exceptional for the diversity of scenery, exceptional vistas, use of former railroad structures, ease of following the path, surface quality, and food and lodging along the way. You can do the whole distance and use a variety of shuttle services... More

Take two teenagers, a 37 year old, a 63 year old, put them on bikes with camping equipment, and head towards Pittsburgh from Cumberland, MD, and you get an adventure! On a beautiful June day, this party headed up a 'mild', 2% grade, taking turns hauling a little trailer full of camping gear behind their bikes. While we didn't make... More
