Ghost Creek Half Marathon

I Ain’t Afraid O’ No Ghost

Experience Pennsylvania’s 2020 Trail of the Year – the Ghost Town Trail! The half marathon course travels through the scenic Blacklick Creek Valley. In the past, this area was full of small mining and logging communities. Today, much of the valley has been reclaimed by nature. There are some remaining signs of these towns along the trail. The Ghost Town Trail is a must-visit destination!
