Playing outdoors in Western Maryland is like playing in paradise. Cycling gets you on the road and into the small communities of our region. Biking the trails gets you into places where you can enjoy nature and the real beauty of our region.
Mountain Maryland Trails (formerly Allegheny Highlands Trail of Maryland) is a citizen's group formed in the 1990's to promote Maryland's portion of a project that has become known as the Great Allegheny Passage. The Great Allegheny Passage, a continuous 150-mile rail trail from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Cumberland, Maryland, links to the C&O Canal Towpath, a continuous 184.5 trail from Washington, DC, to Cumberland, Maryland, creating a continuous trail of 334.5 miles. Mountain Maryland Trails (MMT) follows the route of the historic Western Maryland Railroad for 20.47 miles from Cumberland to the Pennsylvania line. From Cumberland to Frostburg, the trail parallels the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad and its diesel locomotive.
