Great Allegheny Passage
Beginning at Cumberland, and extending all the way to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is the Great Allegheny Passage, a 150-mile system of trails based on old railroad rights-of-way. The connection to the C and O Canal Towpath was completed in 2006, allowing for a continuous trail of 316 miles from Washington D.C. to Pittsburgh. Several trails are organized under the Allegheny Trail Alliance, based in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. The Maryland section of the trail, 20.4 miles from Cumberland to the Maryland state line, is called the Allegheny Highlands Trail and goes through Frostburg, Maryland. The Cumberland Trail Connection is a bike shop at the Cumberland junction of the C and O Canal and the Great Allegany Passage offering rentals and bike repairs.
