This planning chart reflects the trail and its amenities as of about 1999.  We'll update it when we get a chance. We'll also add the new Great Allegheny Passage mileposts when someone tells us how they correspond to old mileposts. Meanwhile, the distances between towns have not changed, and you may find this table useful when you're laying out your itinerary.  If you want a pre-planned itinerary, see the sample itineraries in Linking Up.

 
Planning chart for trips between Washington DC and Pittsburgh PA
Each line represents one mile.  Amenities are located to the nearest mile
Hotel/motel/B&B lodgings must be within biking access -- preferable within 2-3 miles, certainly no more than 5
Camping must be along trail, certainly within a mile
