    Default Great Allegheny Passage

    Im heading on a bicycle ride from Pittsburgh to Cumberland MD with two overnights and camping each night. I see Maryland does not recognize PAs permit. So can the firearm be unloaded when crossing into Maryland? Any other requirements?

    Ummm… don't take a firearm, loaded or unloaded, into MD., unless you want to go to jail.

    As Cumberland Maryland is your destination, I do not believe FOPA will cover you being that in your destination you are illegal to possess. FOPA in theory covers you if you are passing through a non-reciprocal state in which case unloaded and stored out of reach is the prescribed method.

    Is this a nekkid bicycle ride?
    Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

    No guns on that trip unless you want to risk jail time if discovered.

    looking at the map: https://gaptrail.org/explore
    you are good down to the MD line, then there is no way to legally carry a gun into that state, loaded or not. The last access in PA seems to be Deal in PA at MP 24.

    Beware of grass on the trail.

    Maryland gun-law enforcers disguise themselves as grasshoppers.
