Rails-to-Trails Conservancy's 2012 Greenway Sojourn, June 17-24, returned this year to two of the most famous long-distance trails—the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) and the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historic Park (C&O Canal towpath).
On this memorable adventure, Sojourners pedaled 335 miles from Washington, D.C., to Pittsburgh, Pa. Beginning in historical Georgetown in our nation's capital, riders followed the C&O Canal towpath through the Potomac River Valley, the pastoral scenery broken only by the lockhouses and aqueducts along the route, remarkably well-preserved artifacts of America's transportation history.
Then, at Cumberland, Md., Sojourners joined the longest rail-trail east of the Mississippi, the GAP, passing through mountainside railroad towns, leafy countryside, along rivers and streams and across trestles and bridges, on what is now one of the most popular multi-day rides in the nation.
For the 2012 Greenway Sojourn, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy partnered with one of Pennsylvania's most experienced outdoor adventure companies, Wilderness Voyageurs, who have nearly 50 years of guiding experience. They handled all on-the-ground logistics and event registration.
