2012 GAP Trail - Autumn Foliage Scenic Trip
Itinary at a glance:

Depart: Friday October 19th 2012 at 8am from the "Trail Inn"
Friday Night: Husky Haven Campground, Rockwood, PA
Saturday Night: Paddler's Lane Campground, Confluence, PA
Sunday Night: Husky Haven Campground, Rockwood, PA
Arrival, Monday, Oct 22nd - Trail Inn, Frostburg, MD

This beautifully scenic route on the GAP trail will leave Frostburg, meander to Confluence and back. During the route, you'll cross the Mason-Dixon Line and also cross the Continental Divide!

Never been "bikepacking" before? Here are some things to note:
THERE ARE NO COSTS FOR THIS TRIP OTHER THAN YOUR INCURRED EXPENSES.

You'll need to pack and carry everything you'll need on your bike. This includes your tent, sleeping bag, food, tubes and bike maintenance items.
This is a "slow" beginner ride. We are NOT RACING.
This is PEAK season for the leaves changing
We usually have wine and beer each night.
Don't like to camp? Stay at the bed and breakfast along the way!
We become a "community" and often share things along the way.
Two people are better than one, since you can share tents, camp stoves, etc.
