Great Allegheny Passage,

Recommended Posts

Guest Troll

The Great Allegheny Passage, a 150-mile system of biking and hiking trails that will connect Cumberland, MD and Pittsburgh, PA when completed. In 2006, the southern end of the trail was completed, making the connection at Cumberland, MD to the C&O Canal towpath. This created a continuous trail experience, 320 miles long, from Duquesne, near Pittsburgh, to Washington, DC. The final few miles from Duquesne to Pittsburgh are still under construction.


Trail Construction Status


Trail is complete from Cumberland, MD to Duquesne, PA, a distance of 135 miles. The trail ends at Grant Avenue in Duquesne, and construction on the next segment will begin in Spring 2010. We do not recommend riding Route 837 from Grant Avenue to the Hot Metal Bridge: this well-traveled highway has poor sight lines in many areas and non-existent shoulders.
