Meyerdale Pennsylvania

Welcome To

Tucked in the Casselman River Valley in the shadow of Mt. Davis, Pennsylvania’s highest point, Meyersdale, Pennsylvania, has long held a tradition of attracting visitors from far and wide.

Great Allegheny Passage

Today, it is the Great Allegheny Passage, a 135-mile hiking and biking trail stretching from Maryland to Pittsburgh, that draws visitors from across the country and throughout the world to take in the scenic vistas offered up by the former Western Maryland Railway. In 2009, the trail had an estimated 700,000 users.

Special Attractions

The expansive Salisbury Viaduct located west of town and the Keystone Viaduct east of town serve as special attractions for those exploring the trail. Meyersdale is also the closest town in Pennsylvania to the Mt. Savage Tunnel, a 2,100-foot long lighted pathway beneath Mount Savage that provides a stunning vista of the Cumberland Valley from its eastern portal.

Wind Farms

Wind farms located on the ridges east and west of Meyersdale contribute to the country’s energy needs today as they tower above the landscape, providing stunning backdrops for trail users.

An Altered Landscape
Pennsylvania’s wind industry took off in the mid-2000s. Today, giant white blades spin atop towers on Pennsylvania’s mountain ridges, primarily in the southwestern and northeastern parts of the state.
Alternative Energy
The wind on Pennsylvania’s mountains doesn’t stack up to places like the Great Plains where wind whips across the prairie. But developers like EverPower still saw potential in the Laurel Highlands.
Jim Spencer
“That standard has looked less robust and aggressive as other states, realizing the economic benefit associated with having wind farms in their state, started to advance more robust standards,” Spencer said.

Maple Festival

Meyersdale has been the home of the Pennsylvania Maple Festival for more than 60 years, celebrating the rich heritage of a land that was first known to be occupied by the Monongahela Indians who captured the sweet water from maple trees to make maple sugar. This annual early Spring rite lures visitors to Festival Park on Meyers Avenue and features car shows, a parade, and the Lions pancake house where pure local maple syrup is served.

Maple Festival
A sure sign of the sweet return of spring in the Laurel Highlands is when the sap starts to run on the sugar maple trees in “Maple City, USA,” a.k.a. Meyersdale, Pennsylvania
Hillsides of the Alleghenies
Although the Western Maryland is silent except for the voices of trail users exploring the hillsides and valleys of the Alleghenies, trains still rumble through the town on CSX tracks, carrying commerce of the nation from the Midwest to Baltimore on the former B&O.
