2012 GAP Trail - Autumn Foliage Scenic Trip
Itinerary at a glance:

  • Depart: Friday October 19th 2012 at 8am from the "Trail Inn"
  • Friday Night: Husky Haven Campground, Rockwood, PA (~30 Miles)
  • Saturday Night: Ohiopyle, PA (Campground TBD) (~30 Miles)
  • Sunday Night: Husky Haven Campground, Rockwood, PA (~30 Miles)
  • Arrival, Monday, Oct 22nd - Trail Inn, Frostburg, MD (~30 Miles)

This beautifully scenic route on the GAP trail will leave Frostburg, meander to Ohiopyle and back. During the route, you'll cross the Mason-Dixon Line and also cross the Continental Divide!

Never been "bikepacking" before? Here are some things to note:

  • THERE IS NO COST FOR THIS TRIP OTHER THAN YOU INCURRED EXPENSES.
  • You'll need to pack and carry everything you'll need on your bike. This includes your tent, sleeping bag, food, tubes and bike maintenance items.
  • This is a "slow" beginner ride. We are NOT RACING.
  • This is PEAK season for the leaves changing
  • We usually have wine and beer each night.
  • Don't like to camp? Stay at the bed and breakfast along the way!
  • We become a "community" and often share things along the way.
  • Two people are better than one, since you can share tents, camp stoves, etc.
