My wife and I have never been to Ohiopyle, we would like to stay there for a few days and ride the GAP. One day ride North out and back and the next Day South out and back. Any recommendations for a place to stay?

We just got back from riding the GAP-C&O canal trails and had a great time. We camped at Ohiopyle State Park and it was wonderful (minus the too friendly racoons). Nice spots and shower house close-by. The trail is a short but steep quarter mile from the park. It is definitely a push you bike up, but if you're looking for good camping, OSP can't be beat. Enjoy the trail. We wish we were riding it again soon!

Yough Plaza Motel, 1-800-992-7238. By the way the trail runs east and west. and the trail is in the park, which is from Connellsville to almost Confluence

We were there recently, intended to camp but the weather was really bad so we rented a Yurt at the State park. It was great , like half- camping!-
