Great Allegheny Passage
The Great Allegheny Passage is a 150 mile trail that runs from Pittsburgh, PA to Cumberland, MD. From there, it connects to the C&O Canal Towpath to Washington, DC.
The Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) was built on the abandoned rail beds of the West Maryland Railway and the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad, and it was completed in 2013. Throughout the 150 miles of trail, you will encounter bridges, tunnels and train stations— relics of the former rail bustle. The GAP was a collaborative effort of 6 trail groups of the Allegheny Trail Alliance. The GAP is 1 of 11 National Scenic Trails, the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail.
