The trail continues up the Cassleman River. (6 miles) There is no cell phone service between Confluence and Meyersdale. The TOPO! Overlay file included with this review contains data for the entire 30 miles of the Allegheny Highlands Trail from Confluence to Meyersdale and includes the track of the planned trail and road bypass route to Cumberland, Md.

My wife and I love this section of trail. I must admit, we usually take our bikes for an evening pedal. The railroad bed provides almost level terrain. The Casselman river is awesome and periodically you will see kayakers coming down the river. It may be myself and my wife. Stop in at the Mill shop for lunch.
