Jim Mayer Riverswalk Trail

Scenic  rail-trail located between the Moxham section of Johnstown (Rt. 403 S) and Ferndale Borough. The existing 1.5 miles of rails to trails traces the history of the Johnstown and Stony Creek Railroad built in 1891 by the Johnson Steel Company. Features include turn-of-the-century homes, historic Johnstown & Stonycreek Railroad, the grandeur of Buttermilk Falls, and more.

Named for a local conservationist, the Jim Mayer Riverswalk Trail is a delightful, 3.1-mile (5k) urban trail on the east end of the City of Johnstown. Following the Stonycreek River, the trail begins in Riverside on Michigan Ave. and ends in Hornerstown on Messenger St., near Sandyvale Memorial Gardens & Conservancy. This trail offers beautiful views of the river, abundant bird-life and wildflowers, picturesque Buttermilk Falls and serenity within an urban setting.
