The 6th Annual Ghost Town Trail Challenge, hosted by the Cambria County Conservation & Recreation Authority, will be held on Saturday, June 19, 2021, one day before the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year.

The Challenge is a 32-mile long (50k), endurance hike along the entire length of the Ghost Town Trail from Black Lick, PA to Ebensburg, PA. Participants begin at sunrise and are challenged to complete the entire 32 miles by foot before sundown. This is not a race, but rather a challenge, which tests your mental and physical ability to journey this distance.

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. Based on CDC and PA Dept. of Health restrictions, the event will be planned based on the current state, with subject to change over time. More details on the event will be released as soon as the registration page is available.


Full Challenge (32 Miles – 50k) – 7:00 a.m
Half Challenge (16 Miles – 25k) – 8:30 a.m
Friends/Family Challenge (7.5 Miles – 12k) – 9:15 a.m.
