Hello All! Rode the GAP/C&O about 12 years ago, Connellsville to D.C., returned by train.
Without tons of details, is there anything new (detours, closures &c) if I do the same ride this year?
Thanks for your input!

There are no significant closures or detours now that the Paw Paw Tunnel exit work has been completed. Compared to 12 years ago, the biggest difference is that White’s Ferry no longer operates. Thus it is no longer possible to cross the river and ride to and stay in Leesburg.

I failed to mention that when departing from Connellsville for DC these days, you'll find the Husky Haven Campground has been closed.

Too bad about Husky Haven. Always considered the campground to be an iconic spot along the trail.
