What is the best overnight parking option near the start of the trail? We are planning to ride the entire GAP & C&O trails, so parking would be for about 1 week total. We will be riding West to East. Is the Mckeesport parking lot safe?

I'm back. The Waterfront is a better choice lots of lights and businesses, so police and alot of people will be around.

You could try parking at River City Junction a parking pass costs like 12 or bucks for the whole season and it is safe and secure it is about 1.5 miles away from Boston .Mile 132,242 Sandy Dr. Greenock,PA,412-754-0976. They list this as being in Mckeesport but is not in Mckeesport. It is right next to the trail which is real nice and easy. I park here all the time.

Just got back from our trip. We parked at the pump house. Rode the trail for 6 1/2 days, took a day to sight see in D.C. Then rented a van from the airport one way and drove back to the car. Everything was just fine. Returned the van to the Pitts. airport. Had a great time.
