Ghost Town Trail

Ghost Town Trail Overview

Ghost Town TrailThe Ghost Town Trail is a 36 mile rail trail located in Indiana and Cambria Counties of Pennsylvania. The trail, designated as a National Recreation Trail, gets its name from the many mining towns that once existed along the railroad line.

The Ghost Town Trail has grown steadily from its original 16 miles in 1991. In addition to the 36 miles from Blacklick to Ebensburg, there is a 4 mile spur from Rexis to White Mill Station known as the Rexis Branch. This spur begins near the Eliza Furnace, an iron furnace bilt in 1846. The furnace is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Ghost Town Trail is open to bicycling, hiking, and cross-country skiing. Be sure to check with the trail managers regarding the progress in building two missing bridges near Dilltown. There are no current bypasses around these bridges at this time. However, there is still good riding from Dilltown to Ebensburg (20 miles) and Dilltown to Blacklick (12 miles).

Ghost Town Trail access is located at Saylor Park, Heshbon, Dilltown, Wehrum, Vintondale, Rexis, Red Mill, Twin Rocks, Nanty Glo, Ebensburg.
