Looking to ride approximately 150 Mi of trail. For myself, my girlfriend, ??(maybe) and others ??(very maybe) Advise on what could be considered the most scenic & historical points of interest. Want to camp (improved sites),airbnbs or hotel,known good grub but staying true to the trail route as possible and away from big cities. Big on list is natural beauty &wildlife viewing. Avoiding worst time of year for black fly, no seeums and mosquitos. Thank you in advance for any replies. Brian

Brian, can you give us a starting city/ending city range? Are you doing the C&O (DC to Cumberland) or the GAP trail? (Cumberland to Pittsburgh)? I’m sure people here will chime in once we know a few things. Are you flying/driving into DC? John

With no other info, I would say to just do the GAP. Good trail, 150 miles, nice amenities, good grub.
