GAP Trail Day 1 – Thursday, May 25 – 62 miles from Cumberland, MD to Confluence, PA
We arrived at the Pittsburgh Amtrak station at 4:30am for a 5:20am train that didn’t actually end up leaving until 6:50am. We had a beautiful ride uphill 23.5 miles to the Eastern Continental Divide. It was all downhill from there to Cumberland and a nice soft bed at the Smith House Inn.
