we will be riding the GAP trail and the C&O trail in a few weeks. We will be taking the train back to Pittsburg. Is there a clean, safe place to stay the night close to the Amtrak station?

There are three hotels in close proximity to the Pittsburgh's Union Station. They are in order of distance from the train station: AC Hotel by Mariott Hampton Inn Homewood Suites All are within reasonable walking distance and can be seen using Google Maps. That is a reasonably safe area of downtown. There are others on Grant Street downtown that are not much further nor particularly more/less safe. They too can be seen on Google Maps.

Last summer I stayed at the Drury on Grant Street. My room was really big and they didn’t give me any trouble about taking my bike to my room. Have a great trip.

Have you confirmed your amtrak ticket? We had ours completely reserved months in advanced for two adults and two bikes for a Saturday morning and got notice a couple weeks ago that they canceled our route. They offered us a different day, but there were no bike spots available. It definitely threw a wrench in our plan for sure, but we ended up renting a van for one way and in the long run, it will be cheaper and way more convenient.
