A Tale of Two Trails
(A Great Weekend Getaway)
Day 1: Arrive in Cumberland, MD; your lodging will be at our B&B, The Inn on Decatur; stroll downtown (2 blocks away) where you can enjoy dining and “Friday After Five” where live entertainment is provided at our open air pedestrian mall.
Day 2: (32 miles) Rise to breakfast at our B&B, today you will pedal to Paw Paw, WV on the C&O Canal Towpath where you will travel through the 3,118 foot tunnel (bring a flashlight…it’s dark); I will pack one of my Hit the Trails lunches; we will pick you up at the other end of the tunnel; back to the Inn for lodging and an evening of relaxation; tonight you can enjoy entertainment at Canal Place or catch a live theatre performance at the Cumberland Theatre.
Day 3: (32 miles) Another hearty breakfast starts your day; today we will shuttle you to the town of Meyersdale, PA where you will hop on the Great Allegheny Passage; from here on it’s a great downhill pedal back to Cumberland; today lunch is on your own; I suggest coming out at Frostburg for lunch and relaxation; back to Cumberland where you will pedal 4 short blocks back to the Inn
2 nights lodging, 2 breakfasts, 1 lunch and shuttle (2) days.
(This trip can be expanded on either or both days to lengthen the day’s journey.)
