It’s about time. If Sandcastle hadn’t objected, this section of trail could have opened a couple of years ago, for Pittsburgh’s 250th, as it was supposed to. Stupid of Sandcastle & Kennywood to fail to see that the GAP will boost their publicity and their business.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for a route through or around Sandcastle on bicycle, check this map: http://goo.gl/maps/RezW
Sandcastle/Kennywood had different owners a couple years ago.That’s why the trail never went through.Now that there’s a new owner they’re less restrictive and that’s the reason why a trail can now finally go past their establishment.Thank God a new owner took over Kennywood/Sandcastle!!
Are you guys aware that Dan Onorato is making some announcement about the Gap Trail on Tuesday? I can try to get details to share. My guess is that this is the same info that is in the PG artcle above. But happy news.
