Consider an overnight in Meyersdale to break the trip into two days.
West side of the Youghiogheny River adjacent to Confluence, south of the campground near the Yough Lake dam.
To complete part of the Eastern Continental Divide Loop, bicycle 41 miles from Confluence to Deal, then 8+ miles on-road to the northern trailhead for the Big Savage Mountain Trail. Continue past Deal on the GAP to cross the Divide and to visit the Big Savage Tunnel. Outfitter shuttles and lodging in Meyersdale available.
