Biking vacation
  1. Great Alleghany Passage Trail
  • The Great Alleghany Passage goes from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Cumberland, Maryland.
  • The total mileage of this trail one way is about 150 miles
  • This bicycle trail (at the right time) is one of the greatest bicycle experiences I’ve had to date
  • Most of the time I would bicycle sections of the trail, years later I did the entire trail. The feeling once conquering this vigorous adventure was that of a space explorer reaching the surface of an untouched planet.
  • As a biking vacation spot, I had no choice to add this beautiful 150-mile trail
  • If you’re pretty experienced you can expect to do this in 3+ days

Biking vacation
  1. Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath Trail
  • This trail goes from Cumberland, Maryland to Washington, DC
  • If you want to make for a larger bicycle trip, you can continue from or towards the Great Alleghany Passage. This would add an additional whopping 150 miles to your adventure
  • This is absolutely one of the most stunning trails you’ll ever find. I personally found it unbelievable, but remember to try to go here when the rain is quite a distance away. If it’s rained relatively recently, portions of this trail will be quite a bit less than fabulous
  • On average it takes most people at least 5 days to bicycle to C & O Canal Towpath

Deer on a trail

  • I would very much encourage you to at least check this amazing place out
