Rode the trails from 4/20 - 4/27, starting at DC.
No water pump handles for the first 100 miles or so, so plan your water accordingly.
Trail conditions were good all the way. Many of the small town cafes and restaurants were closed, not sure if it was due to the economy or maybe they don't open until May. So food and water needed to be planned. All campsites especially the hike/bike sites were basically empty.
Some nights were freezing and days were mainly in the 50's with a head wind all the way. So going west to east would have been a better bet.
Great way to spend a week and highly recommend it. Hope to do it again, but from Pitts to DC next time.
Both closed trail locations, Paw Paw Tunnel and Dravos Landing were passable, just ignore the signs and you can get through easily.
The Ohiopyke State camp ground accessible from the trail up a very steep rough trail just west of the town, so make sure you have a booking before the climb!
