Mountain Maryland Trail's premier fundraising event, the 3M Challenge will feature a race between two of Mountain Maryland's oldest mechanized modes of transportation - the WMSR train and the legs of a cyclist.
The event will highlight the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP), Western Maryland Scenic Railroad (WMSR), towns of Cumberland, MD and Frostburg, MD, scenic beauty of Allegany County, and healthy outdoor lifestyle. The Great Allegany Passage between Cumberland and Frostburg is the only location in the country with 15.6 miles of side-by-side bike trail and scenic train. The 3M Challenge is usually in the fall of the year.

The GAP Trail Ambassador program needs you! A great way to have fun and help support your community at the same time. Ambassadors promote the trail and the surrounding communities by providing information to people using the trails. Most people are looking for directions to restaurants, bike shops, and bathrooms or are looking for someone to take a group picture. While talking to them, find out how they heard about the trail and the area and any other information they want to share that can be helpful for further development of our community. It’s a fun way to help. We have two meetings a year, at the start and end of the season, and an easy reporting system. If you would like more information, please contact Sue Rudd firstname.lastname@example.org or Larry Brock at email@example.com. Thank you!
