Armstrong Trail is across the road from the parking lot for the Cowanshannock Trail, you can take a easy hike on the crushed gravel with the site of the river which runs beside it. If you go in Early Spring bundle up the wind off the river is icy cold¿ but sight is pretty.
Closed for construction since March 8th no indication of when it will reopen. Really looking forward to hiking it since others said there are some pretty sights. To compensate the Armstrong Trail is across the road from the parking lot you can hike on the crushed gravel with the site of the river which runs beside it in the meantime.
I have done this trail a few times. I usually start near the college & go to Saylor Park, then back again. Stop by Sheetz along the way for a drink. I like the scenery.
This is my go to trail. Southern end is in Braeburn. Northern end is under bridge. Soon the trail will go past the bridge to connect to Kiski junction, running alongside the Baker Trail. Great to hike in all seasons and to bike when the weather is good.
Went for a ride 3-27-2021 from the bike parking to redbank and I loved it. Crushed gravel trail makes for a small bit of drag but still very easy. I'll be returning more often.
I rode the GAP late last Fall from Cumberland to Pittsburgh and enjoyed it immensely. Did Cumberland to Connellsville Day 1 and that was a little bit too long a day for me but the weather was great and I met up with some very cool people traveling in my direction. I did Connellsville to Pittsburgh relatively quickly on Day 2, arriving at Point State Park by midday. Lovely ride. Well maintained rail trail. Nice amenities all along the way. Beautiful scenery. Got lost a bit in McKeesport but found my way back relatively easily. Highly recommended. Now to go from Pittsburgh to DC!
wonderful trip across America
Well I would like to say the trail was nice, but......... Never found the southern trail head to even begin the walk. And if you are looking for signage forget about it, there is none. You are better off going to the other side of the river and doing the Butler-Freeport trail. It is well marked and has ample parking.
Very nice ,convenient location,
I see very few recent reviews of this lovely trail. The tunnel under Rt 22 is indeed open and allows road access to Canoe Creek SP. The signage to Flowing Springs Rd access and parking appears to be upgraded as well, as another user noted it may have been missing in the past. This under-utilized trail continues to be a year round favorite of this biker.
This was my first ride on the C & O in years. I've stayed away due to rough gravel, pot holes, and rocks that even my hybrid couldn't overcome. But recently I heard that there had been resurfacing at Shepherdstown. What a world of difference! Crushed limestone that is compacted into a very level trail. We rode north from Dargan Bend to a couple miles past Shepherdstown. Dargan Bend was the closest parking lot we could find across from Harper's Ferry. Being there in late fall, the trees were bare but the river views were great. The trail north of Shepherdstown is gravel with rocks protruding here and there, making for a rough ride. We only traveled until hitting 10 miles from our start before turning back. Our timing couldn't have been worse as there was some kind of a foot race going on, but since we traveled 100 miles to get here we rode anyway. (I checked the NPS.gov website before going but saw no mention of the race, so not sure how one finds out about events on the towpath.) Overall, though, it was a great 20 mile ride.
What a great section of the Ghost Trail. Wehrum has a large parking lot and is easily found. Only a little over 2 miles from Route 22. No one else was parked there, so there is plenty of room. Trail is very flat and very well maintained. Less than 48 hours since a big rain storm and the trail was dry! Good idea to wear bright colors (orange) since you'll see some hunters this time of year. This was our first cold weather (48 degrees) ride and we learned plenty. Next time gloves and a scarf. Can't wait to come back and explore another part of this trail.
