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

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
