Very well kept rail trail with beautiful views and benches along the way. Can be hiked as an out and back from South Fork/Ehrenfeld or connects with the Staple Bend Tunnel Trail and lower Path of the Flood Trail for a longer hike/ride to Franklin (Johnstown).

Nice 1.3 mile trail from the outskirts of Franklin (Johnstown) to the Staple Bend Tunnel Trail, joining that trail right at the historic tunnel. Well maintained, only a mild incline near the end, benches and historic informational signs along the way, and a picnic table on the other side of the tunnel. Great for walking with kids or pets. 2.6 miles total to the tunnel and back, or 3.5 miles one way from this trail head to the parking lot at the far end of Staple Bend Tunnel Trail.

This trail is a great and easy walking path, a nice way to get out and get some fresh air and easily enjoyable for the whole family....Do get directions for parking off the ghost town trail website instead of using the directions button on this page it does not take you to it but other than that a really nice trail.

Very well-maintained trail! I travelled from the John Saylor Park in Blacklick to the Scott Glen Bridge around the 12 mile marker and returned back. Very nice views with some history along the way. Chances are you'll encounter some wildlife along the way. I spotted two porcupines crossing the trail and a few deer here and there.

Great for biking. The trail has moderate inclines depending on which way to way. I've ridden Dilltown to Vintondale and Rexis a few different times which is a nice bike ride.

This is another great trail. I only road from Dilltown towards Ebensburg about 15 miles and back. It did rain on us and this cut our ride short. As a side note, I lost a perfectly good cell phone in the porta potty. If you hear one ringing, it's mine!
