Rails to trails event to be early this year
Held a month earlier than usual, from June 17 to 24, this year's Greenway Sojourn taps the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) and the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historic Park (C&O) beginning in historic Georgetown in Washington, D.C., following the pastoral scenery, lock houses and aqueducts along the C&O Canal towpath to Cumberland, Maryland.
The ride will then join the longest rail-trail east of the Mississippi, the GAP, passing through historical towns, countryside, rivers and streams and across mountain trestles and bridges.
One of the most popular multi-day rides in the nation, recent additions and improvements to the GAP will make this a remarkable experience for both experienced riders and first-timers.
