Great Allegheny Passage is now fully connected from Pittsburgh to Cumberland, MD, which then connects to Washington, D.C. via the C&O Towpath. For the most part, the elevation is level. Between Ohiopyle and Cumberland, there is a fairly steep elevation change, but it is spread out over many, many miles, so do not worry. Between Ohiopyle and Pittsburgh, the trail is practically flat. Camp along the way!
