Honan Avenue Trail Description

The Honan Avenue Trail is a 3.5 mile long community pathway in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. The trail begins at the River Walk Trail in Cambria City, Johnstown, then heads north for three miles along Honan Avenue to the Hickston Run Reservoir, where it provides access to the Eagle Trail and the Joseph P. Whipey Trail.  The wooded corridor was a roadway that fell into disuse and disrepair, including becoming an illegal trash-dumping site. Community efforts led by the Laurel Highlands Historical Village led to the restoration of the road as a walking and biking path for the residents of the area. Now it provides a scenic, lively journey for trail users, who are likely to spot wildlife such as deer, eagles and beavers, as well as a large waterfall at the trail’s end. There are trailside benches for anyone needing a rest, as well as interpretive signs to educate children about area wildlife.

Parking and Trail Access

From Broad Street in Johnstown, head north on 4th Avenue across the Conemaugh River to Iron Street then turn right. Go one block and turn left onto Honan Avenue. Go up Honan Avenue to the gate. Park here.
