Enjoy a Leisurely Queen City Ride with Rail Bikes!

Ride over 15 miles of track, mostly on a downhill grade (the last 3/4 mile will require some effort). The route includes beautiful scenery through the Allegheny Mountains of Western Maryland. We will go over bridges, through rhe Brush Tunnel, coast parallel to the Great Allegheny Passage, and wave hello to cyclists. We will finish our Queen City tour as we glide into Queen City, Cumberland, MD.

The terminus of the excursion is at the Historic Western Maryland Railway Cumberland Station at Canal Place. Our tour guides will show you where the shuttle bus will pick you up and set you free to explore The Queen City.
Grab lunch at one of the many options in the Canal Place Shops or Downtown Cumberland, check out the C&O Canal Visitor Center, Allegany Museum (on Saturdays) or pack, a picnic and enjoy. Our shuttle bus will return to Canal Place (near the C&O Visitor Center) at 1:00 p.m. for the return trip to Frostburg where your vehicle is waiting.
