Biking Through History on the Great Allegheny Passage


Edited by Edward K. Muller
Photographs by Paul g Wiegman

The Great Allegheny Passage Trail is a world-class biking, hiking, and recreational gateway that stretches nearly 150 miles from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Cumberland, Maryland, where it connects with the C&O Canal Towpath to reach Washington, DC. Showcasing all the natural beauty of the region, this former American Indian path, trade route, military road, railway link, and portion of the original National Road is also a journey through American history.

The book's engaging narrative is complemented by the nature photography of Paul g Wiegman and an extensive selection of historical illustrations, all of which reveal the stunning scenery and history of the biking trail. This book captures the essence of the trail as a journey through both time and space, one that evokes all of the heritage and beauty of a region that would grow to prosper and help forge a nation.

"A must-read for anyone biking or hiking along any section of the Great Allegheny Passage. It will enrich their experiences many times over."   --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
