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 The Brush Tunnel, coast parallel to the Great Allegheny Passage and wave hello to cyclists. We will finish our tour as we glide into The 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 pm for the return trip to Frostburg where your vehicle is waiting.
Good to Know
Dress appropriately, our tours run rain or shine. You may have a half hour layover between railbiking and the departure, use this time to visit the attractions at Canal Place or the C and O canal tow path visitor center.
