We had a Really fun trip. The GAP trail is amazingly beautiful. Full of supper views of rivers, rapids quant towns with lots of history along the way. The trail is smooth and shaded for the most part and easy to ride.

We had a great trip. The weather didn't cooperate but the trail was fun and challenging. The pacing between the bed-and-breakfast was perfect. The towns along the way are towns of the past. Do not ask for coffee with Stevia and almond milk. BYO dietary...More
