A bikeing path in Johnstown PA

Johnstown’s riverside location and the Main Line Canal spurred the town’s growth, providing transportation for the local iron, coal, and steel industries. But the surrounding waters have a deadly history of three epic floods, including the 1889 Johnstown Flood, which killed over 2,000 of Johnstown’s citizens. Learn more at the Johnstown Flood Museum; explore the Path of the Flood and Staple Bend Tunnel Trails or go paddling at the nearby Stonycreek Whitewater Park.
