First, the incomplete section from the Staple Bend Tunnel to Franklin is now complete. Note though, that this section of the trail is still a bit rough. There is run-off from the hillside, so there's a good bit of mud on this section. And parts of it are steep and hilly. When I went through a few weeks ago, they were working on this, so I'm sure this will get better.

Once you get to Franklin, the bike route is a little better marked in town to the city. Next, the Ehrenfeld trail access is still the same. A little side note, don't try to park at the actual trailhead, because there IS room for a few cars , there's a good chance the South Fork police will ticket you. I know, they got me! The positives of this trail outweigh the negatives though. The scenery on the whole trail, especially from Ehrenfeld to Mineral Point and then on to the Staple Bend Tunnel, is just beautiful.

Make sure you stop for a break at the Conemaugh Viaduct. Most likely, if you wait a few minutes, a train will come through. It's neat to see! I'm just glad a trail like this is so close to my home. It will be my "go-to" trail hopefully for a long time. My wife and I have been walking local trails for years now. The fresh air, the sounds of nature and the light conversation between us when walking, all mix together to create a pleasant and healthy outing that costs nothing, just a couple of hours.

We meet others on the trails and often talk for a while. The experience is exuberant, refreshing, and peaceful-- and that mood stays with us the rest of the day when we walk in the morning.

On the trail from Mineral Point to the Staple Bend Tunnel, the sightings of deer, groundhogs, squirrels and the sounds of the Norfolk and Southern Railroad once the Pennsylvania Railroad that come from down a steep embankment beside the trail, add to the pleasant experience of this scenic and historic stroll.

Pusher Engines help push freight trains up the steep grade to Altoona. A very similar problem that canal boats had: The Portage Allegheny Railroad used inclines to pull and lower canal boats, often loaded with freight, up and down very steep grades, when coming from the East or West. The Mineral Point Trail is flat and covered with shell or limestone that has been tamped down-- making it a good walking surface.

And many benches are located next to the trail, close enough together to make it easy to reach the next one with just a little effort. The trailhead at Mineral Point has parking and restrooms. And though-out the trail, information about the railroad and tunnel is provided on podiums. Venturing through the tunnel cools you off on a hot day, and once you exit the western end, the slope meets you.

This slope was the site of the old incline that once raised and lowered canal boat. I would recommend taking a flashlight along. But it is safe to enter the tunnel without one. And stone culverts can be seen as you walk or bicycle by. One day alone on my bike, I started from the Mineral Point trailhead and bicycled though Mineral Point, and took a trail segment that was once the old trolley route which leads to Ehrenfeld.

A very scenic and historical view strikes you on this trail, and one that should be ventured upon by all who love trail walking or bicycling. The old Conemaugh Viaduct for example, can be viewed. When a train is passing over the Viaduct, a mesmerizing picture that visually reminds us about the railroading history that has settled into these mountains appears.

With just a little imagination, the old Portage Allegheny Railroad and the canals came alive again. It was a time-consuming effort on his part with some help from others. At the time of the Allegheny Portage Railroad, steam engines were in their infancy. When steam locomotives were in their old age and diesel locomotives taking over, Bethlehem scrapped perhaps hundreds of steam locomotive in the s!

When they were done with them, a new batch of them came in-- lined up all over the place. Oh, if the Staple Bend Tunnel could only talk! The rest of the Path of the Johnstown Flood trail follows streets into Johnstown. This last leg would be very difficult to walk but can be easily traveled by bicycle, but I would recommend riding this leg only on a holiday or Sundays when traffic is much lighter.

I lived in Johnstown all my life, but never knew where the Staple Bend Tunnel was or knew much about its history until a few years ago. With so much history around Johnstown, every tourist should spend a couple of days enjoying the historical sights and festivities that the summer months promote.

And walk or bicycle our many relaxing and scenic trails. I had been looking forward to biking the Path of the Flood trail for some time, and today, I finally had a day off. So off to the Ehrenfeld trailhead I went. After reading reviews and info online, my plan was to bike the whole way to the Franklin ball field and then on into Johnstown and the Flood Museum.

No big deal, so off I went. The first section of trail approximately miles to Mineral Point was very scenic, especially the Conemaugh Viaduct especially if a train's coming through! But caution, this section is mostly downhill, so remember that coming back will be uphill! Reaching Mineral Point, you now go off trail and through town on the road.

The section through town is a good climb uphill to the Mineral Point trailhead. Here the trail flattens out a bit and is also very scenic. Take a flashlight, and look around inside, if possible. There are signs telling bikers to walk their bikes through, and this is probably a very good idea.

Next the trail pretty much ends. I guess there are plans to extend this trail on into Franklin, but currently, there is a fairly rugged road to the Franklin ball field. There are No Trespassing signs and you wonder if you're even allowed to be there! But keep going about a mile or so and you'll reach the ball field.

Here is where I got lost. I thought after reading online, that there would be signs on the streets of Franklin directing bike riders the way to the Flood Museum, but there were only a few signs for 2 or 3 blocks, and then nothing. I am fairly familiar with the city of Johnstown, as I live in the area, but I had no idea where I was.

I rode around for awhile in Franklin, and then East Conemaugh, looking for directions, but I couldn't find my way. Luckily, I found a dollar store, got something to drink, and took a break at the East Conemaugh Veteran's Park. I somehow made my way back to the ball field and just went the way I came.

All in all, it was a nice, scenic ride. I am not a beginning rider but not an expert either! Certain sections are definitely not for beginners. I would visit this trail again, but only when the whole trail is finished in the future. The upper portion of the trail from Mineral Point to Ehrenfield is streets at each end and former streetcar line no vehicles set high above the river, in between the ends.

There is parking at the park restrooms at Ehrenfield and at the Staple Bend Tunnel parking lot restrooms and water across the river and railroad at Mineral Point. The Staple Bend portion of the trail was part of the Allegheny Portage Railroad, which connected the eastern and western portions of the Pennsylvania Mainline Canalin the early 's.

The Flood was in The best view of the tunnel entrance is the one on the far end. The close entrance, for some reason is quite plain but the far end was built with "Corinthian Collumns decorating it. They tell you to walk your bike thru the tunnel. I didn't. You can see the other end and can concentrate on it and ride thru.

On the way back, I was hot and tired, so I walked and midway thru, realized I had a small flashlight in my bag. I stopped and got it out and looked at the interior. As iI started walking again, I ran over some chunks of rock that had fallen from the ceiling but that I missed luckily on the first trip thru.

You can not see the trail surface when you ride thru, only the light at the end, so don't ride. At the far Johnstown end, the trail decends one of the inclines where they hauled the canal boats up or down to the valley level. There is an informal trail to the unused railroad bed, which when followed, take you into Franklin the upstream end of Johnstown.

However you end up inside a scrap yard fence with no way out. There is about a mile of trail at the Franklin end, but it is way up on the hillside, with no connection to the Staple Bend Trail yet. The is a planned connection in the future, but not yet. To get to the Franklin trail start. Do no be afraid of the "No Trespassing" sign on the street at the brick posts and gate.

At daylight, May 30th, it met and repulsed the enemy's cavalry at Wardensville. June 1st, at dusk, it overtook and charged Jackson 's rear at Strasburgh, and in the pursuit of him up the valley was constantly in the advance. It joined in the sharp cavalry fight near Harrisonburg , June 6tb, where the rebel General Ashby was killed, and in Fremont 's battle at Cross Keys, two days later.

On the 9th it made a dash to save the bridge at Port Republic , but too late for success. The army now retired down the valley, and on July 10th crossed the mountains to Sperryville. About this time Major Lyon resigned and Captain Middlebrook assumed command. The battalion, now in Sigel's corps, arrived at Cedar Mountain August 9th, just at the close of the battle there, and on the 12th joined in the pursuit of Jackson to the Rapidan.

With its brigade, under Colonel Beardsley, Ninth New York, it fought through Pope's disastrous campaign and helped to cover the shattered fragments of his army on its retreat. It was now badly used up and to a large extent dismounted, and lay with its corps in camp near Washington three months, during which time it received about one hundred recruits, and was entirely refitted and remounted.

In December it moved with its corps to Stafford Court House, where it remained a month, scouting and picketing, when it was ordered to Baltimore for provost duty and to be filled up to a regiment. During this period the headquarters of the regiment were at Camp Cheesebrough , Baltimore , Md. Major Fish was provost marshal. The secession element being strong in Maryland , the business of the office was large.

Several officers from the regiment were appointed assistant marshals, and large details of its men were constantly on provost duty in the city and on provost and scouting expeditions to various parts of the State. Captain Farnsworth had charge of the camp. Under his energetic lead the men rebuilt the barracks and erected officers' quarters, paved the company streets with brick, and graded and turfed the ground between.

Barns were also built, and a hospital and chapel. July 5th he was ordered with men to Harper's Ferry, then occupied by the enemy. On the 14th, with forty-nine men, he attacked a rebel picket on Bolivar Heights , numbering, with their reserve, or more, but his horse becoming disabled under him, he was captured with more than half of his men; the remainder withdrew, bringing several prisoners captured by them.

The regiment arrived at Stevensburg , Va. As he lay helpless on the ground the rebels brutally shot him repeatedly with his own revolver. He received twenty-one wounds and was left for dead, but lived long enough to tell the tale. May 4th the army crossed the Rapidan. The division was now on the extreme right of the army, where it remained on severe duty as rear guard during Grant's hazardous movement across the James.

On June 10th, in one of its many skirmishes, the much-lamented Captain Backus was instantly killed while gallantly leading his men. His body left a short time in possession of the enemy, was stripped by them of everything but his shirt. The division, almost worn out with fatigue, crossed the James on the 17th at 1 o'clock A.

On the 22d it started on Wilson 's daring raid against the South-Side Railroad, and, without rest even to water the horses, marched for twenty-four hours by a circuitous route to Ford's Station, fourteen miles west of Petersburg. It destroyed the railroad from there westward. An attempt to destroy the great bridge across the Staunton at Roanoke Station by daylight having failed, General Wilson called for Captain Moorehouse and seventy-five men from the First Connecticut to burn it by night.

They responded cheerfully, though knowing that but few probably would return alive. Fortunately, while they were preparing the combustibles, the attempt was thought so desperate that the order was revoked. The retreat across the country to Stony Creek, on the Weldon railroad, now began. The First Connecticut Cavalry distinguished itself in the unsuccessful but hotly-contested attempt to break through the enemy's lines at this point, and then covered the rear in the perilous withdrawal to Ream's Station.

The enemy were met here on the 29th in heavy force. The command was in the utmost danger. The campaign in the valley under Sheridan was a busy one. August 16th, just after dark, while fighting dismounted, the First Connecticut was cut off and almost surrounded by a large body of infantry, many of whom were within easy speaking distance.

Escape seemed impossible, but aided by the darkness and by a swamp which hindered the march of the enveloping column, it was effected at the last moment, greatly to the surprise of both friend and foe. On the 25th the regiment fought at Kearneysville, and was complimented by General McIntosh for "the handsome manner" in which it charged through the woods; and on September 14th Captain Rogers' squadron, by a rapid dash, helped to surround and capture the Eighth South Carolina Infantry with its colonel and colors.

Colonel Blakeslee, still suffering from the effects of his wound, now withdrew, leaving Major Marcy again in command. The regiment opened the battle of Winchester , September 19th, crossing the Opequan at dawn, and driving the enemy at a gallop until the first line of rebel earthworks was in sight. Then, the whole brigade in line, the First Connecticut in the center, charged magnificently up the slope, and with a yell went over the breastworks, man and horse together, capturing prisoners by the way.

The brigade held this position till our infantry came up, and was then put on our extreme left, where towards night the division made a grand charge against the flank of the retreating enemy, driving all before it for miles. On the 21st, at Front Royal, the division forced a passage across the Shenandoah in face of the enemy, and with one charge scattered them in wild confusion.

All movements were performed at a gallop in the open fields and under the eye of the commanding general, and the First Connecticut gained the credit of being "better handled and manoeuvered than any other regiment in the division. October 1st, Wilson was sent west, and Custer was put in command of the division.

The troops now retired down the valley. October 17th found the regiment on picket at Cedar Bun Church. Rosser dashed in at night with two brigades, hoping to surprise the division in camp, but though he captured Major Marcy and thirty men, was defeated in his plans through the stout resistance of the men on guard.

August 7th the battalion took part in an expedition under Colonel Vinton, Sixth Michigan, which was surprised in camp at night near Waterford , Va. Later, the First Connecticut, under Lieutenant Rogers returned the compliment by surprising a rebel camp in the same region and capturing a large number of prisoners. Afterwards, with other troops, it made two expeditions to Winchester , and one in November, of fifteen days, to Harrisonburgh, meeting the enemy each time.

Meanwhile, large additions were being made to the regiment. In January, , its ranks were full, and Major Blakeslee, who had been on recruiting service for some time, was ordered to Baltimore to assume command. The detachment at Harper's Ferry was sent back and the recruits put under rigid drill and discipline.

The regiment was mounted and fully equipped, and on March 8th, strong, marched to join the Army of the Potomac. Next morning the First Connecticut, as advance guard, met Longstreet's advance at Craig's Church and opened the Wilderness battles on our left.

Major Marcy, with about men, reconnoitering, was cut off. As the only chance of escape, he ordered sabers drawn and a charge through the enemy. This feat was most gallantly accomplished, with the loss of about forty men. The division fell slowly back, the First Connecticut covering the rear, to Todd's Tavern, where it made a stand and checked the enemy.

The terrific infantry fighting of the next two days being ended, the First Connecticut led the advance in Grant's movement toward Spottsylvania Court House, and early in the morning charged into the town, driving out the enemy there and capturing thirty-five prisoners, mostly infantry; but supports failing to come up, the division presently withdrew. That night the regiment received Spencer's and Sharp's carbines in place of the much inferior Smith's, General Wilson saying it "had earned the right to carry them.

At daylight on the 9th, stripped of all incumbrances, with one feed of oats in their nose-bags and two days' hard tack and five days' salt in their haversacks, the cavalry started on Sheridan 's raid to Richmond. Stuart followed, and engaged us at Beaver Dam Station on the 10th, and on the 11th at Yellow Tavern, where he was killed. On the 12th the corps, with the First Connecticut in the extreme advance nearest the city, fought nearly all day within the defenses of Richmond , withdrawing across Meadow Bridge at night with much difficulty.

On the 15th it met supply steamers at Haxall's Landing on the James, and rejoined the army at Hanover Court House on the 25th. The First Connecticut lost about horses used up on this raid; their riders, except as they took the places of the killed and wounded, being sent to Dismount Camp.

With forty men of the Third New York he dashed through the enemy's lines and reached headquarters with fourteen men and two prisoners. But it was too late. Wilson burnt his ammunition and baggage wagons, left his ambulances, spiked his guns and retreated in hot haste. The enemy pressing in on every side, turned the retreat into a rout. Color-Sergeant Hawley, First Connecticut, stripped the flag from its staff, stuffed it into his bosom under his shirt, and escaped with a wounded horse and with four bullet-holes through his blouse and one through his cap.

The First Connecticut was the first regiment to make a stand against the enemy.
