GAP Trail

In September 2014, I rode the Grand Allegheny Passage from Cumberland MD to Pittsburgh PA. The C&O Canal ended in Cumberland and the GAP started as the C&O finished. The GAP is 150 miles of crushed limestone. After riding on the C&O, the surface of the GAP was different, hard crushed limestone compared to the dirt of the C&O. Parts of the GAP are former rail road beds, or parallel existing rail road beds. Other sections run through state parks and are quite beautiful.

Cycling from Cumberland MD to Pittsburgh was a 3 day trip:
Cumberland to Rockwood, Rockwood to Connellsville, and Connellsville to Homestead. Homestead is just 9 miles from downtown Pittsburgh where the trail ends.
