Gap Trail Access

The Great Allegheny Passage offers 150 miles of spectacular biking and hiking from Cumberland, Maryland to Pittsburgh, through Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands. Flying into Pittsburgh to bike the GAP trail? Fly in a day or two early and visit the Andy Warhol Museum & take in a Pirates baseball game at PNC Park or a Penguins game at PPG Paints Arena. It’s now time to start your GAP trip in Downtown Pittsburgh at Point State Park. Then follow the Monongahela River out of the city. The transformation of Pittsburgh is on display as you cycle past the former steel towns that drove the U.S. in the 20th century. After a 45-mile bike trip, stop off at mile marker 102 in Perryopolis, PA to lay your head down at Buffalo Bill’s House, The Silence of the Lambs film location.
