The Great Allegheny Passage/C&O Canal Gravel Tour rides along two of the best back-to-back gravel trails in the United States. Both of these magnificent trails are steeped in history with the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal (C&O Canal) trail offering a more “back in time” experience.
The Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) is a more recent addition to the growing number of US rails-to-trails and it offers a world-class 150 mile gravel trail second to none in terms of quality and experience.
Maryland has a signed bicycle route network with separate bike paths in some areas. The legal protection of the cyclist is not yet described in detail.
Maryland has a varied landscape with low plains on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Long sandy beaches, giving way to a hilly countryside in northern and central Maryland. In the far west the landscape changes in the forested mountains of the Appalachians.
In eastern Maryland, the hot summers and mild winters are influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. In the western interior of the state it is cooler in summer and the winters are colder.
