I rode the GAP with a group of Venture Scouts. I loved it so much that I plan to ride from Washington to Pittsburgh next year! We got on the trail in Cumberland and took 3 days to ride to Pittsburgh. The scenery will take your breath away. The trail is well maintained - you don't need a special bike,... More

Beautiful trip. My wife and I decided to take on the GAP as a 4 day trip from Cumberland to Pittsburg. It seems many folks start from Pittsburg, but actually, the first 22 mikes up from Cumberland are not that difficult and the next 130 miles are downhill. The trail is will maintained and the surrounding forest is cool and... More

We started near McDonald pa - the bike riding is smooth and along the Yough River- we passed many small waterfalls and lots of falling water coming out of the rocks. At certain times you can watch the white water rafters paddling by. There is a lot of shade so riding on a hot day is not too bad. Would... More

We hopped on the Trail at Frostburg. Parking there is limited so get there early. Fascinating sculpture at the Frostburg entrance worth seeing. Smooth gravel ride in both directions. Gentle grade up and easy glide down to Cumberland. Tunnels and view headed northwest towards Pittsburg are outstanding. If you time it right you can travel south east alongside the Western... More

I did this ride two months after my 60th birthday, and I am not an experienced cyclist. I bought a road bike a year ago for a three day ride of 25-40 miles a day in the Finger Lakes. I loved that ride and wanted to do more, but hated the hills. So my daughter and I, and a father/daughter... More

We biked the GAP from Pittsburgh to Cumberland. 4 days. Spent 3 nights. Although it is officially uphill to the Eastern Continental Divide, the less the 1% grade is easy for anyone. Highly recommend this Trail. great views and small towns. Used "Get out and Play" in Cumberland to shuttle our bikes and us to Pittsburgh; I recommend them! In... More

I have wanted to do this ride for years and was not disappointed when my son and I saddled up and rode the GAP between Cumberland MD and Pittsburgh PA, a 4 day, 150-mile bike trip. Our outfitter Bike the GAP based in Pittsburgh handled all the arrangements for hotels, B and B's and shuttle transportation as well as rental... More

A not-too-vigorous bicycle ride through 400 miles+plus of history and great towns. Try to avoid the rains because certain sections can be made completely impassable.

I did the trail in reverse from Cumberland to Perryopolis. From Cumberland, you go uphill all the way to Frostburg. Very beautiful scenery, especially in October when the leaves were changing. Stayed overnight in Meyersdale. Places to camp on the side of the trail and also a B&B and a house across the river (where I stayed for $40 a... More
