We did the Frostburg to Cumberland part of the trail, riding back down from our train ride up. The trail is fantastic. They need some more signs in Frostburg for the trail and the mileage markers seem sparse and random at times, but it is...More

Great scenic trail with a wonderfully maintained trail surface. Rode the full length both east and west. Both directions are great and have pros and cons. Westbound - you have a 24 mile climbing then a gentle descent for 126 miles. Eastbound - the opposite....More

We stayed at the Fairfield and could access the trail just outside of the hotel exit. It is easy walking with little elevation near the hotel. Great views of the river. A little buggy on the day we walked.

We rode from Cumberland to Pittsburgh, which is a great way to see this part of the country. We crossed the continental divide and the Mason Dixon line. There are several beautiful viaducts and really cool tunnels that you go through. We stopped at Meyersdale,...More

Rode the trail from Pittsburgh to Cumberland and rode back the next day. Sort of a boring ride but the condition of the trail was excellent. The section through Ohiopyle was scenic. Stress free bike riding with mile markers the whole way and no motor...More

I've ridden every stretch of this trail more times than I can count on day trips and once on a 3-day full-length trip. I'll never be able to say enough positive about the GAP.. If you want a great day trip, skip Ohiopyle and the...More

You need to do this trail. We went in the northwest uphill direction and survived. We did the 23 mile ascent to the 2400 ft eastern divide. It was a gentle slope but relentless pedaling for a couple hours. The trail is in great shape...More

I suppose it all depends on the ages of your children but it is very gradual and practically flat from Cumberland to Frostburg. It starts to climb at Frostburg up to the Eastern Continental Divide but still is not very... More
