Regional Trails

The Southern Alleghenies Region contains hundreds of miles of walking, hiking, and biking trails within its six-county footprint.

Counters were placed on the following trails:

  • The Shuster Way Heritage Trail in Bedford, PA.
  • H&BT Trail
    • Riddlesburg Trailhead
    • Cypher Trailhead
    • Tatesville Trailhead
  • James Mayer Riverwalk Trail in Johnstown, PA.
  • Path of the Flood in South Fork, PA.
  • The Old Pennsylvania Pike Trail (TOPP) in Breezewood, PA.
  • Somerset Lake in Somerset, PA.
  • Thousand Steps in Mapleton, PA.
