Ghost Town Trail

Ghost Town Trail in Indiana and Cambria counties was recently named the 2020 Trail of the Year of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn recently announced the Ghost Town Trail has been named Pennsylvania’s 2020 Trail of the Year.

“Rich with the history of railroading and former coal mining towns along its 46-mile route, the Ghost Town Trail, like so many rail-trails throughout Pennsylvania, captures the spirit of an industrial past and the promise of a recreational future,” said Dunn. “ And again, we see a rails-to-trails conversion spawning economic benefits with establishment of new businesses and increasing patronage at others. Restaurants, bike shops, clothing retailers and outfitters, hotels, and motels. The list goes on and on.”
