The Great Allegheny Passage remains open for biking, hiking, running, and exploring this spring, and travel restrictions will be eased in Maryland and sections of Pennsylvania beginning today. The visitor center along the GAP in Ohiopyle State Park has reopened for limited foot traffic.  Some bathrooms are open, but most water remains turned off, so plan on carrying extra water.  The West Newton Visitor Center and Meyersdale Visitor Center remain closed out of an abundance of caution. Many lodging properties are welcoming guests; call ahead to check their status and make reservations. Restaurants are still limited to curbside or takeout service. Some essential retail establishments are reopening with limited capacity. Please call ahead before making your plans, wear a mask, and be generous with tipping -- for the livelihood of neighbors who rely on tourism.


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