I am planning a ride in September, I'll be renting a car and driving to the Pittsburgh area then biking to DC. Do you or anyone else have any suggestions on places to stay overnight near the trailhead in Duquesne/Homestead? I believe this is now open This seems to be my biggest challenge in planing the trip. My fallback is to stay in Pittsburgh then take a shuttle/taxi to the trailhead. Thanks for any ideas

I am planning a trip this September. I'll be renting a car and driving to Pittsburgh. I am having trouble finding out which is a better option... 1, Staying overnight in Pittsburgh then taking a shuttle to the trailhead or 2. are there better options near the new trailhead in Homestead / Duquesne. I've read that biking the road from Pitssburgh to the trailhead is not a good choice
