Awesome, and really fun to jog!

January, 2017 by isaacwathieu

I went on a 11 mile run through swains lock and it was so fun, you would occasionally see other runners but not too much. I also enjoyed the scenery around me. It is mostly dried dirt but has some mud. Really great if you are going with family members.

Exceptional Trail

November, 2016 by steve plattner

In October due to a weird work schedule, I got on the trail at Connellsville, rode to Pittsburgh, took Amtrak to Washington, DC, then rode back via the C&O Towpath and joined the GAP again at Cumberland. Did it in six days pulling my BOB trailer the whole way.

The GAP trail is terrific. Very well-maintained, seems very popular. I encountered all sorts of people, including many riding the entire Pittsburgh to Cumberland or on to Washington route. The beginning it uphill for nearly twenty miles, but very do-able if you set your pace. The Mason Dixon line monument is wonderful, as is the tunnel nearby. Lots of great scenery and wildlife--even saw 1 porcupine and a black bear darted across the trail. I stayed at the Ramada in Cumberland (fine) and had a great Italian dinner nearby, then stayed in Meyerdale the next night before heading back into Connellsville where I stayed off the trail a bit at the Melody Motor Lodge--a throwback to another era but fine. Parked my car near the Amtrak station at the Connellsville PD--they just asked that I leave them a note with my contact info just in case. I really enjoyed the more industrial areas as well as the natural ones--McKeesport, Homestead, etc. Lots of history and beauty.

I would rate the GAP among my top four bike trails--with the Katy in MO, the Greenbrier in WV, and the shorter but beautiful VA Creeper--especially east of Damascus.

Sheepskin Trail

Trail is open and historic

November, 2016 by biagiowallace

I have ridden the GAP numerous times but have never ventured onto the Sheepskin Trail. This short spur off the GAP was a very pleasant surprise. As the reviewer stated below there is a large' graveled lay down yard' a mile onto the trail but with a little effort you are able to get back onto the trail (bearing left). The pleasant surprise is that at the end of the trail is the historic town of Dunbar. From it's coke ovens, glass sculptures and museum at the end of the trail this ride was very rewarding. I strongly recommend the visit. The trail is supposed to be undergoing some improvements in the future with a possible extension to WV. The most surprising item to note is who donated the valuable large sculpture at the museum. It is a rewarding and surprising valuable excursion.

Rode trail East to West and back with a stop in Hancock for a quick bite to eat. Wide trail with 1 - 1.4% grade. Beautiful view of the Potomac River. A very nice 44.7 mile ride,

Blackwater Canyon Trail

Labor Day

November, 2016 by george.dasher

We rode this trail just before Labor Day. Parked at Hedricks and rode up, had a beer or two (and excellent crossaints (however you spell them)) at the Purple Fiddle in Thomas, and drifted all the way back down to our cars. It was great ride, and the trail was well maintained--unlike our previous experience on this trail. We will most likely do this again--and again.

Finding Mile Zero

October, 2016 by youker

It is a shame to bike 185 miles and not find Mile Zero and the River Lock in Georgetown. When biking the towpath when I meet thru bikers I offer the following advice. At Fletchers Boat House mile 3 switch from Towpath to Capital Crescent Trail. (Old RR) This takes you into Georgetown on K street under the overhead highway. Go to the end just before Rock Creek and go around the last building on your right (Georgetown Univ. boat house) and walk around to your left down stream and there is the river lock and ground zero.

Great Allegheny Passage

Views, views, views.

October, 2016 by garykeese_tl

I rode the C and O/ GAP in October 2016. It is one of the best rail trails in the USA. THE views between CUMBERLAND and Ohiopyle are fab, especially in the fall colors.
Although they are very different, the C and O/ GAP make a great 330 mile car free week-10 days. Lots to see and do along the trail, so take your time.

Get reservations for Falling Water, Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece near Ohiopyle.

If you haven't been, allow a day or two to see Pittsburgh. Take the furnicular for a birds eye view of downtown.

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

C and O/GAP - a great combo,

October, 2016 by garykeese_tl

History, engineering, and (often) mud.

Great fall colors in October, amazing canal engineering, and civil war hisory thrown in for good measure. Tow path drains poorly, so be ready for mud if it has rained recently. Lots of hiker biker campsites every 10 miles or so, but be aware some are near the busy mainline railroad tracks.
I was concerned about using a two-wheeled trailer on the sometimes double track path, but no serious problems.
Easy to connect to GAP in Cumberland, MD and ride on to Pittsburgh.

Blackwater Canyon Trail

Great vistas

October, 2016 by biagiowallace

This is one of the great trails for breathtaking scenery. Started in Parsons WV and rode to Thomas WV. The ride from Parsons to Hendricks is paved once in Hendricks the trail ascends to Thomas. About two miles past Hendrick the trail get's a little rough and is not maintained but the struggle is worth the views. Once you get to Douglas Falls the ride into Thomas is fairly easy. Thomas is a great mountain town with all amenities. This trail would be outstanding if maintained but it is definitely one of the best trails in the country.

Top Bike Tour Year Oct 2016

October, 2016 by tjprosseda

My personal goal for this year was to take my first bike tour of the GAP with 3 other women and all of us are 60+. Let me say this trip riding the GAP was the most awesome exciting invigorating life experience for all of us. Loved getting an early start on the trail to see a lot of wildlife every day, the beautiful views riding along the water, basking in the great weather on the bridges and let's not forget about passing through the tunnels! The people on and off the trail were friendly, helpful and cheerfully offered advice to all of us. While the first part of the trail was a challenge (Frostburg to the Summit) and was foggy in some areas, it didn't stop us as we wanted more! At all of our lodging sites, the owners were helpful and accommodating. I'm ready to go back!

Western Maryland Rail Trail

Beautiful

October, 2016 by bpatch

We started at the beginning of the trail at Sideling Hill Wildlife Mgmt area. Quite a backwoods drive to find the trailhead but worth the trip. Trail was very well maintained. Could see Tow path trail running parallel and also old telegraph lines still standing. Road to Hancock, MD where there are many quaint shops and nice places to sit and relax and have a picnic or find a hometown restaurant to refuel.
