Cumberland Road Trip – Last Call

Pam and Bill have planned an exciting weekend in Cumberland MD for Memorial Day. Cumberland is at the junction of the Great Allegheny Passage Trail from Pittsburgh and the Cumberland & Ohio Canal Towpath Trail to Washington.

Bill and Pam will be camping at the New Germany State Park and the nearby Savage River State Forest has numerous primitive low-cost campsites over a wide area, some of which may still be available.

Activities that have been planned for the weekend include Kayaking on the Savage River Reservoir, hikes in the State Park, and an awesome downhill bike ride on the GAP Trail with including a ride through the Big Savage Tunnel, and views of the forests, farms, and distant mountains of Maryland.

If you are interested, it’s time to sign up and help plan the weekend. Contact Pam at cumberland@springwatertrails.org.  Remember that it is a holiday weekend and you will need a place to stay, so planning ahead is recommended.
