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.
The Allegany Museum
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.
