The trail is an old roadbed which is now used for hiking and biking. The trail starts off the River Walk trail in Cambria City, Johnstown, heading North on Honan Ave. Along the 3 mile trail you will be able to view a huge active Beaver dam, small waterfalls and at the end of trail a huge waterfall. Then the trail splits in two parts, one part staying on the western side of the dam, named eagle trail where Bald Eagles can be seen. To reach the Joseph P Whipey trail, you cross the bridge turn left on road and enter at midpoint or by pavilion.

Rode from Honan Ave access to Hinkston Run Dam. Trail follows Hinkston Run up to the dam and rewards you with a waterfall view you can see in the YouTube link below. New trail so it is not finished but other than a few rough places in the first mile or so (that are easily navigable) and that awful knotweed occasionally obscuring Hinkston Run, it is a good run. Went after recent wavy rain and saw several near water trails coming down hillside and a small wetlands that were cool. The rains did make some drainage issue but they were easily rode through. Gave it 4 stars to encourage them to make improvements so it can be a five star
