easy, well maintained trail. Part of it is paved and the other part is manicured nicely. You can bring a stroller and dogs as long as they are on a lease. Touching stories of those who fought back on the bottom of the trail and beautiful overlook of the crazh site at the top.

Great hike very informative however if your following the book from the visitor center this map is not entirely correct.

I DO NOT recommend this trial.

1. The “directions” take you to the bus drop off, not the parking lot.
2. There is no trail where the map says there is.
3. There are “no backpacks” signs all over the “trails” (I.e. the walk between the parking and visitors center)
4. No signs pointing to ANY trailheads. I walked about for 1 mike trying to find something even consulting the park maps and using the GPS in all trials to find the trailhead.
5. This one is my personal preference, but too many people not being considered of others (smoking, yelling, etc).

what a great ride up to ebensburg. make sure that you take a photo at the end of the trail.... it's a really good ride

Not your typical hike, but well worth the visit! This is a moving tribute to the heroes of Flight 93. The architecture is just as moving as their courageous story. The trail is well manicured and takes you out around a beautiful meadow full of wildflowers and maples.

This is a great trail. It is maintained extremely well. Vintondale to Nanty Glo is a challenge, but all tje other sections are great. I would recommend anyone on this trail.

Very easy trail. I highly recommend purchasing the booklet as it is filled with good historical information.

If you like history, this is a fine hike. If you prefer hiking in the woods rather than spending 70% of a day on asphalt, don’t bother with this. Gettysburg is what it is. The hike up to Big Roundtop was the highlight. The diesel fumes from the tour buses was the low point. Thanks to this app, at least we didn’t get lost.

A good, long walk through the battlefield. I used the map on my AllTrails app to supplement the trail guide, and missed a few things. My favorite parts were following Pickett's Charge across the field to Cemetery Ridge, and of course, Little Round Top. The section along Confederate Ave was quieter and less crowded than the other parts of the walk. .

Very maintained trail ! Very easy walking out and back and very nice views. If you want a nice path for riding bikes from south fork to mineral point.

Lots of history. Easy walking.

Nice mostly paved trek. A small area goes into high grass with a narrow path. It’s optional but be aware of ticks if you choose to take this route. I opted out because it was very muddy and I didn’t have bug spray with me. Be sure to venture to the top of the PA monument to get a great view of the battlefield.

Took this trail every year as a kid on our annual trip with the Boy Scouts every April. Would like to go back and do it again soon as it has been years. I will agree with a previous review about taking plenty of water

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.

It is paved, marked trail. Walk to the left around the back of the visitor center to access the trail without going inside the building (no backpacks allowed and fee to enter). Wear insect repellant. We returned with four ticks with spray!

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.
