Cashtown Gap

Where is the original Cashtown Gap that the troops used today?

If it is still a public way where exactly is it?

I'm sure it's not todays Rt. 30.

Thanks Rick. I've driven past the Cashtown Inn on old Rt 30 to where it meets Pa. Rt 234 several times.

I guess my question is when I cross the highest point on that road is that the actual route the troops took.

Or was there a different road than today.
