Rails to Trails
The Western Maryland Scenic Railroad runs from Cumberland to Frostburg. The ride is wonderful, passing through a couple of tunnels and around a great horseshoe bend. For a small fee you can load your bike on the train up the mountain side. The ride back down is mostly a coast, very easy and very fun. Try it, you will enjoy it. I look forward to being back on the bike in a few months. I need to go ride this again.
The C&O trail from DC, ends at Frostberg (though there are some gaps that require riding on busy streets) making it possible to ride from DC to Pittsburgh. I have ridden a couple of segments of the ride.

You want to come along?Delete
I LOVE RAILS TO TRAILS! You should try the Greenbrier Trail in WV, the New River Trail in VA, and the Virginia Creeper Trail from Abington to Damascus (and on up to Whitetop Mountain, but you REALLY want to be shuttled up, and ride down to Damascus, then to Abington).ReplyDelete
I've ridden all three from end to end, and they are spectacular!
