Pittsburgh to DC: GAP and C&O Canal Trip Route Overview
The Great Allegheny Passage and C&O Canal Towpath are known for their mild elevation changes: canal boats and trains are notoriously flat travelers. Riding six days on car-free trail is a selling point in itself. But what will those daily rides look like (and feel like on the legs)?
Below is a sampling of the ride elevation profiles from each day of the tour. This is a representative group– it may not include all ride options and it may not be the entire ride of each day. Feel free to click around on the interactive map below to get a sense of each day’s ride!
