Great Allegheny Passage

Great Allegheny Passage 

The Ohio River Greenway Trail is the proposed connection between Great Ohio Lake-to-River Greenway in Ohio and the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) in Pennsylvania. Presently there is no off-road bike path through Beaver County to the Montour Trail and the GAP. Below are some suggested on-road routes to the Great Allegheny Passage through Beaver County from the state of Ohio.  The ORTC makes no claims as to the safety of these directions.
