Cycling the C&O and GAP Trails (Reloaded): Day 4 Cumberland to Rockwood

Todays Distance: 45.7 miles
Total Distance 238.6 miles

Day 4 – Fuck hills. I knew today was going to be a lot of climbing but seriously, fuck hills. The first part of the day turned out to be about 22 miles of steady climbing. I think I was averaging between 6-8 mph during that section.

I did probably see some of the prettiest scenery of the trip though so that was cool. Additionally, the GAP trail is much better than the C&O… it’s just much nicer to pedal on. It’s this compact, fine gravel stuff; not mud like the C&O.

Tonight’s camp ground is husky haven in Rockwood, PA. The camp ground itself isn’t so bad – I just wish the shower houses were closer. You have to basically bike 3/4th of a mile, across the river to use the shower house; not ideal IMO.

Tomorrow is 59 miles to Perryopolis, PA.

  1. You can always ride down here, dude, but then you’d be saying fuck mosquitoes, or fuck hurricanes, or simply fuck Florida! Glad you’re over the top. Congrats!

  2. These photos are beautiful!! I had a great time at husky haven, maybe just because I spent too much time at the bar between the campsites and the showers, haha.
