A beautiful hiking/biking trail that I'd part of the Great Allegheny Passage. Runs across several bridges and a viaduct. Free trailhead parking just off Main Street. Quiet, peaceful, and serene. Permanent mile markers for GAP tell you how far you've gone.

The GAP Trail is beautiful and fun. We started in Pittsburgh and continued on at the end onto the C&O Towpath. We averaged about 40 miles per day and stayed at great b and bs along the way. The grade of the trail was gradual and easy. There was always a good place to stop for lunch or coffee. The... More

I love this trail! Went out two weeks before the actual trip to see what 110 miles in a day feels like. It was great. The trail i.e. Very well maintained and scenic. The grade is perfect for a very long day in the saddle. Two weeks later, I did the through trip to DC in three days. Fabulous 'down... More

We started in Meyersdale, PA and ended in Cumberland, Maryland which is about 35 miles. After you cross the Eastern continental divide, its a pleasent coast into Cumberland! The Tunnels & Viaducts and views along the way were great!

Well maintained rails to trails. Have booked the sections of this area and each has been a great day of biking.

I ran the homestead, pa (Pittsburgh) section of the trail. Nice trail, primarily for biking in this section. Paved asphalt trail. Nice views. Coulda used a porta potty. 🙄. Will run in the opposite direction on my next visit.

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

I have completed the entire GAP trail on three different trips. Doing it in two days (via Ohiopyle) and twice three days (Perryopolis/Meyersdale & Connellsville/Meyersdale). 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
