Can you leave your car for a few days at the Myersdale Station to complete the GAP trail? If so, who do I email to let them know I will be leaving it there? Thanks

If you call them or stop in, just inform them how long your car will be there, plate/car model, and contact info. They are used to letting people parking there for a week (or so) at a time.

Is long term parking allowed at the station? Thanks!

As you probably know or certainly can see in a satellite view of the Meyersdale Train, home of the Meyersdale Historical Society, there is/are a large parking lot(s) adjacent to the building. However, I do not know if they permit long term parking therein, i.e. overnight parking for one or more nights. I would think there would be ample space as I've never seen it anywhere near full. Unless someone on this forum responds directly, the simplest way to find out might be to simply call them at:


and see what they say.

What is the GAP Trail like going 15mi both north and south from Meyersdale Station?

We will be riding 15mi (30mi RT) north tomorrow, Jul 14, and then 15mi south on Jul 15 from the Meyersdale Station.
