Why the Grand History Trail in 2016

In the fall of 2015, Rails-to-Trails announced  that a group of bicyclists from York County, Pennsylvania, were going on a six-day ride to raise support for completion of the Grand History Trail, a 300-mile regional trail network that will link the rich historical regions of southern Pennsylvania, Maryland and Washington, D.C.

When complete, the trail system will take users on a circular tour through 250 years of American history via Washington, D.C.; Baltimore and Annapolis in Maryland; and York, Hanover and Gettysburg in Pennsylvania.

We selected this trip because it takes us from Jeff's home in Virginia to some wonderful historic towns via some great cycling routes.  During our planning phase, we received excellent input from one of the routes originators and look forward to help defining what the Grand History Trail can provide.  Check out their web page here.
