The waterway implied in the name of the Jim Mayer Riverswalk is the beautiful Stonycreek River. The trail, also named for a local conservationist, hugs its eastern bank, providing a natural retreat in southwestern Pennsylvania’s Johnstown.
The level, crushed limestone pathway—designated as a National Recreation Trail in 2018—offers an easy 2-mile walk or bike ride with trailheads and parking at either end. Along the way, keep a lookout for deer and many types of birds, as well as the 50-foot Buttermilk Falls located mid-trail.
To the northern trailhead: Follow 403 South through Johnstown until it turns into Bridge Street. Just before crossing the river, turn left into the parking next to the gas station. There is a well-marked trailhead.
To the southern trailhead: Follow 403 South through Johnstown and across the river. At this point 403 is called Ferndale Ave. Turn left on Eisenhower Blvd. and cross the river again. Take an immediate left onto Michigan Ave. Pass under the railroad trestle. The road ends here at a parking area and trailhead.
