Somerset County will open the Big Savage Tunnel for the season the afternoon of Friday, April 1. Take caution while biking or hiking near the tunnel as the limestone trail surface will remain soft from melting snow and lingering winter temperatures at that altitude. Plan your 2022 adventure with the latest edition of TrailGuide: The Official Guide to Traveling the C&O Canal Towpath and Great Allegheny Passage! If you’re out checking out Big Savage Tunnel in April, fuel up in Meyersdale or Frostburg with breakfast at a local diner. Or plan a weekend around the upcoming Pennsylvania Maple Festival!
