A damp, cavernous tunnel that appears to go on forever! We turned around about half way. Be sure to watch your step and wear shoes with a good tread as the path is uneven. A flashlight is a must!

Went from Cumberland about 4 miles through the tunnel into West Virginia. Very mice ride. Admittedly, a small sample size, but it whetted my appetite for more!

I took my three sons, two grandsons and nephew for a ride Pgh. to DC. Wonderful experience. Met really nice people along the way. everyone was friendly. Viaduct and Continental Divide are worth the trip.

We rode the entire trail from Pittsburgh to Cumberland and it was a great experience. Had heavy rain for most of it and the trail drained well and offered a smooth and sure riding surface.

Took 4 days of riding to see more sights. Trail is way to ride and so much fun. Very beautiful. Lots of small waterfalls. Plenty of bathroom facilities and places to rest. Canapy offers shade from the 90 degree weather we rode in.
