In addition to observing the beauty of the GAP as it passes through remote sections of the state, the trail provides the opportunity to visit tiny towns where trains would stop as they made their way back and forth, bearing the weight of the Pennsylvania steel industry. What do these towns look like? You’ll have to hop on a bike and see for yourself.
A hallmark of the trail is the fact that it is nearly flat, meaning almost anyone can tackle it. (Or as much of it as you want.) As you soak up the region, here are some spots to look out for:
view looking up to Big Savage tunnel overlook.
Confluence pedestrian bridge.
