The McDade Trail, 32 miles point to point and traversing the gap, is a recent addition to the formal trail network in the Gap and which will serve as the course for the Water Gap 50k. A great mix ranging from rail-trail feeling cinder path to singletrack, the non-technical and rolling McDade Trail is a perfect venue for a relatively fast and scenic fall trail 50k.
