|The Yockatomac Trek ™|
This year the trail open from McKeesport (15 miles southeast of downtown Pittsburgh) all the way to downtown Washington DC, so this is also a good year to plan your own ride. This site will help you to learn about some of the logistics decisions, find out about some other peoples' trips so you can find space on a trip, or avoid busy weeks when you plan your own. So plan your trip, let us know via our information form, so we can add it to the calendar of planned trips.
A great source of information on trips along these trails is the booklet Linking Up, by Mary Shaw and Roy Weil. We highly recommend that anyone who is considering this trip should get a copy from a local bookstore, bike shop, or the ATA bookstore.
If you want to lay out your own itinerary, check out the mileage table from Linking Up or the mile by mile strip map. Also check the list of other trips and the Planned Passages Calendar.
