Join us for a six-day excursion on the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) and Montour Trail. The Great Allegheny Passage is one of the nation’s premiere rail-trails and the nation’s first inductee to Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s Rail-Trail Hall of Fame, and the Montour Trail which provides connectivity and adds value to urban neighborhoods.
This ride will give rail-trail enthusiasts from across the country a taste of trail development and adventure at their finest! Spend an active long weekend with the people you care about most.
Please contact Comfy Campers to reserve a tent package if you do not have your own tent. They also offer coffee service (highly recommended if you are a serious coffee drinker!), towel service and other a-la-carte options.
