Visitors can enjoy 21-miles of single track mountain biking trails, swim and picnic at the beach, camp in yurts and cabins, boat, fish, hunt, cross-country ski, ice skate as well as go orienteering, wild-life watching and snowmobiling.
Indiana County’s parks and trails system is one of the best in Pennsylvania with over 64 miles of rails to trails. The county boasts 792 acres of lakes; 5,452 acres of parks; and 12 miles of single track mountain bike trails. Couple this amount of acreage with the varied skill level of terrain and you have a dynamite combination! Many of the biking and hiking trails run along historic paths with interesting lessons to be learned. In 2020, the Ghost Town Trail was awarded the distinction of being named “PA’S TRAIL OF THE YEAR” by DCNR!
