“An ultra long trail from Cumberland, Maryland to Washington DC.”— Jeffrey Go
At over 180 miles, this route passes through a large variety of landscapes and forest types, eventually making its way to the heart of Washington DC. Since most visitors don't attempt the full trail all at once, there are a variety of camping spots and scenic overlooks along the way. Take your time to enjoy this journey, as you'll pass many of the Mid-Atlantic's most scenic spots. The trail connects with portions of the Great Allegheny Passage, providing visitors with ample opportunities for exploration.
The trail is multi-use, and other visitors include those on foot and those on horseback. Please be courteous and give the right of way to both pedestrians and equestrians.
