We brought our bikes up to Frostburg for a great ride after helping to get our daughter settled into her apartment for her second year at college. We rode a few miles north before turning around and riding to Cumberland. What a great, peaceful ride! Nice downhill grade made for easy peddling and some pretty vistas along the way. Cute... More

I typically walk the trail from Frostburg toward Myersdale. I generally walk 2 to 3 miles up the slight grade and then return. This portion of the trail is moderately scenic but not dramatically so. Condition of the trail is perfect for running, walking or riding a bike. While no vehicles are supposed to travel on the trial, you will... More

One we did a one way car rental to Pittsburgh and got picked up in Cumberland the other two we drove to Cumberland, took a private shuttle to Pittsburgh. This is possible the best rail... More

We rode to the Eastern Continetal Divide from Frostburg, MD (8.4 miles). 2 tunnels- really fun. Cool air.. you go a gradual uphill to start & on way back.. whew goes fast... Trail was VERY well maintained. Hybrid or Mountain bike better.

A friend told me about this trail and being bikers, my boyfriend and I decided to try it. We started in Frostburg, MD and headed toward PA. It was so cool to come upon the Mason-Dixon monument and read all the plagues about it and the tunnels that we passed through. The Big Savage Tunnel was a surprise, too. It... More

Just completed the GAP trail from Pittsburg to Cumberland Maryland. The trail is a great crushed gravel base and is very well maintained. The scenery is beautiful along the way and the Ohiopyle State forest provided shade for 40+ miles. I was concerned about doing this trip the last week of June, but it has been great. After the climb... More

The best thing to happen to our area for a long time! Great biking & hiking. The bike ride from Frostburg to Cumberland is a gradual down hill trip with great scenery. The 16 mile trek is delightful.

We arrived early before a scheduled train ride and enjoyed our bike ride much more than the train ride . We went approximately 8 miles going gentle or slightly up all the way before we needed to turn around so we could catch our scheduled train ride . We will definately be coming back to do again this time all... More

We rode from Pittsburg to Cumberland (west to east) and had a GREAT time. The trail is crushed limestone and is well marked and VERY WELL maintained! Thank you to all the volunteers. I would STONGLY recommend it to anyone looking to do a first time distance bike ride.
