Please be aware that part of the public area loop has been closed until further notice as the park starts preparatory efforts for this summer's paving project on the Picnic Area Road.
Much of the land currently owned by the park had been disturbed prior to park acquisition. Human settlement and land use had altered the land and its historic view. With the homesteads removed and vehicle access now limited, the land, while it will never return to is historic state, is now returning to its natural state.

The Conemaugh Viaduct was used by trains even after the Portage Railroad closed. The Johnstown Flood of 1889 washed the original viaduct away, but a replacement was completed within 3 days of the flood.
