Ghost Town Trail

The Ghost Town Trail is a rails-to-trails project that extends for 19.5 miles in the Blacklick Creek Valley of Pennsylvania from Nanty Glo and White Mill (near Belsano) in Cambria County to Dilltown in Indiana County. The trail project began in October, 1991 when the Kovalchick Salvage Company donated the former Ebensburg & Blacklick Railroad property. In October, 1993 the Cambria & Indiana Railroad donated four miles of the former Blacklick & Yellowcreek Railroad known as the Rexis Branch. The Rexis Branch follows the abandoned Cambria & Indiana Railroad for about four miles along the north branch of Blacklick Creek from Rexis to White Mill near Route 422. The Ghost Town Trail name is derived from the sites of once thriving coal mining towns of Bracken and Wehrum along the trail corridor. For a more detailed description of the trail visit the Ghost Town Trail Site.
