Ceremony marks final link of Great Allegheny Passage

PITTSBURGH — More than 1,000 bicyclists rode single-file along the last mile of a Pittsburgh-to-Washington trail to mark the full trail’s opening.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gaz­ette reported that the cyclists celebrated Saturday in Pittsburgh, including a group that had ridden from Washington starting Friday.

Ground was broken in October on the final mile of the Great Allegheny Passage, a 141-mile trail from the Pittsburgh area to Cumberland, Md. From there, the trail links with the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal Towpath, which stretches to Washington.  

The trail passes through part of Somerset County.
