Hi Schosh, the scenery is spectacular. I have ridden the GAP several times and the C&O a few. The condition of the trail is as good as the GAP, as for people, all very nice and maybe 15 or less a day. All my riding days where during the week except for one Sunday which was more towards the South end of the trail. The elevation does effect you but it does not slow you down during your ride but you will take your breaks sooner then you normally do. Let me explain it this way. I normally will do 15 to 20 miles without a break on the GAP but here in might just be 8 to 10 miles. But if you are anything like I was, you will be stopping all the time to take pictures. With all that being said, this was the toughest trail I have complete and I did it in both directions. Hope that helps.
