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.

Cycling conditions Pennsylvania has a bike network and has more quiet, rural paved roads than any other state. The legislation on bicycle safety is still under development. LandscapeThe north and west of the state are part of the Allegheny and Appalachian Plateau and consists of rolling hills. This plateau changes to the southern Appalachian ridge (here up to 1,000 m high) that devides the state from north to south. West (forests) and East (agriculture) of the Appalachians it is flatter. Pennsylvania is densely populated, however many people live in the population centers. The remainder is very rural. Climate Pennsylvania has warm, not very dry summers. Winters are severe and especially in mountainous areas there is much snow. ›› More information on Pennsylvania on Wikipedia
