The Pedalshift Project 238: Paw Paw Tunnel Bypass – Part 2

Part two on my two day trip from Hancock, MD to Paw Paw, WV and back focuses on how I handled the frigid night at camp and then the bypass trail itself, plus a fun discovery on the other side.

Pedalshift Tour Journals: Paw Paw Tunnel Bypass – Part 2

A little background… the NPS is closing the tunnel… for real this time… to complete a massive descaling project on the downstream side of the Paw Paw tunnel. That means when it’s closed, the only way to continue on the towpath is to go up and over the mountain the tunnel goes through.

I had never done it. Until this trip.
