Get an Overlooking View of the Allegheny Mountains, Cash Valley, Helmstetter’s Curve and More in Maryland!

Depart from the beautiful and historic Frostburg Depot, built in 1891 and restored almost a century later in 1989. Pedal the most scenic section of the railroad, soaking in beautiful mountain views and enjoying being surrounded by nature.

Pedal through Brush Tunnel and lean into Helmstetter’s Curve. This longer ride and the continuous downhill grade is suitable for all ages and abilities. As long as one person is pedaling, you’ll get to where you need to go! (Keep an eye out for that one lazy group member though and make sure they aren’t sunbathing).

We’ll finish this tour at the Cash Valley Crossing where our shuttle bus will shuttle you back to our depot.
