The Challenges of the C&O, and the connection to the Great Allegheny Passage

"Linda McKenna Boxx employed a strategy worthy of Hannibal when she started on the eastern end of what would become the Great Allegneny Passage, connecting first to the existing C&O Canal National Historic Park before heading west to Pittsburgh along railbeds abandoned by several railroads. By the time the trail-building effort reached Pittsburgh it would have 320 miles of completed trail behind it, pushing toward completion."


The Great Allegheny Passage ® (GAP) rail-trail offers 150 miles of hiking and biking from Cumberland MD to Pittsburgh,PA.
