Experience the beauty of this rail-trail from end to end. This trip is a slower-paced version of the full 6-day tour. Instead of daily mileage of 50-60 miles, you will be riding 30-45 miles a day. Relax, take in the sights and enjoy! This trip ends in Cumberland, MD – the beginning of the C&O Canal.
We begin riding in Homestead, PA, and cover every inch of this world-class rail-trail, ending at the terminus with the C&O Canal National Historic Park.
Custom bike tour departures available for groups of 6 or more.
