We stayed at the Fairfield and could access the trail just outside of the hotel exit. It is easy walking with little elevation near the hotel. Great views of the river. A little buggy on the day we walked.

I've ridden every stretch of this trail more times than I can count on day trips and once on a 3-day full-length trip. I'll never be able to say enough positive about the GAP.. If you want a great day trip, skip Ohiopyle and the...More
