It takes about two and a half hours to drive from Pittsburgh to Cumberland, Maryland. The scenic route takes a bit longer.

The Great Allegheny Passage, which connects the two cities, is about 150 miles and takes about two or three days, depending on one’s pedaling speed. About a million bikers from all over the country and more than 35 countries hit the trail each year and, according to a recently released study by the Pittsburgh consulting firm Fourth Economy, they generated an economic impact of $121 million in 2019.
