About the Adventure

Activity Level 4: Strenuous (length and riding speed) Guides: Joe-lead, Megan-assist Location: Dilltown, PA The Ghost Town Trail mainline is 32.3 miles long running from Saylor Park in Black Lick to Ebensburg, PA. This ride will have a gentle climb as we ride from Dilltown to Ebensburg (19.75 miles one way.) There is one slightly steeper section in which we'll be rewarded with beautiful creek views and the sound of rushing water. As we pedal through the Black Lick Creek watershed, we'll encounter the remnants of the coal and iron industry and the ghost towns that were once thriving communities in this region. In Vintondale, we'll see the Eliza Furnace. This 39.5 mile out-and-back ride is on a crushed stone trail. Elevation gain: 370 feet. We will maintain an average riding speed of 10-12 mph. This outing is limited to 10 riders. If the event is full, email to get on the waitlist. Heavy rain cancels the event in which case you will be fully refunded. WAC Biking Safety and Etiquette 1.
