The Great Allegheny Passage traces America's westward expansion through a chain of cyclist-friendly trail towns. The trail soars over valleys, snakes around mountains, and skirts alongside three rivers - the Casselman, Youghiogheny, and Monongahela - along a nearly level bike trail. You’ll  pass through the Cumberland Narrows, cross the Mason-Dixon Line, and cycle atop the Eastern Continental Divide at 2,392’, all while weaving through the breathtaking scenery!

Getting Here:  Tour originates Pittsburg and ends in Cumberland.
