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. If you are 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, a Penguins game at PPG Paints Arena or a Steelers game at Acrisure Stadium. 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.

Where to eat
Our favorite for an easy and casual sit-down local meal is at Rinnie’s. If you’re looking for a great little casual ’50s-style diner atmosphere, Rinnie’s is the place. For some homemade meals and fresh-baked pie, visit Randall’s Family Restaurant. If you’re looking for a fun night out with friends, then visit our personal favorite for a night out, the 1933 Grill, under 20 minutes away. The 1933 Grill is a contemporary, rustic speakeasy offering modern American cuisine and specialty drinks. A personal favorite in the summer months is Smitty’s Marina, a short 20-minute drive. You can either dine inside or outside on the deck overlooking the scenic Monongahela River and marina. Do you have a sweet tooth? Stop by Gene and Boots Candies for fine chocolates and old-fashioned ice cream.
