The 4th Annual Ghost Town Trail Challenge, hosted by the Cambria County Conservation & Recreation Authority, will be on June 15, 2019, the Saturday before the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year. The Challenge is a 32-mile long (50k), one-day, sunrise to sunset endurance hike (or run) on nearly the entire Ghost Town Trail from Blairsville, PA to Ebensburg, PA. Unlike a footrace, the “challenge” is not to come in first or win, but to endure, to finish the hike in one day.
Full Challenge (32 Miles – 50k) – It begins at 7:00 a.m. at Saylor Park in Blairsville and ends at the YPCC in Ebensburg.
Half Challenge (16 Miles – 25k) – It begins at 7:00 a.m. near the Wehrum Trailhead and ends at the YPCC in Ebensburg.
Friends/Family Challenge (7.5 Miles – 12k) – It begins at 7:00 a.m. at the Nanty Glo Trailhead and ends at the YPCC.
All proceeds from the Ghost Town Trail Challenge will benefit the Friends of the Trails program, which exists to enhance and expand the Cambria County Trails.
