Your journey begins in Ohiopyle as we head “downhill” on the GAP ( Great Allegheny Passage) towards Cedar Creek in the “Yough” Valley. The near -level trail constructed on old railroad bed with a maximum 2% grade and a smooth crushed limestone surface- translates into mile melting easy riding. From there, you will spend the next day along the Casselman River crossing beautiful iron bridges created by the railroads as we descend from the Allegheny Front to Cumberland, Maryland- the Queen City.
The third day you will have the sheer joy of riding downhill all day, beginning with the Casselman River as your companion and ulitmatley finishing your day cruising through the Youghiogheny Gorge back to your car.
