- BUSINESS & COMMUNITY
The Bike Path in Johnstown is part of the T.J. Evans Recreational Trail. If you start the asphalt paved trail in Johnstown you can travel 14 miles through much of Licking County, including the city of Newark. This bike path was once part of the Penn Central Railroad. It was also known as the New York Central/Toledo & Ohio Central Railroad. The path includes historical markers along the route.
Much of the Johnstown section of the bike path is covered with an abundance of foliage. It has been described as riding through a long, green tunnel. The gradual descent from Johnstown to Newark allows bikers to enjoy an almost effortless ride. Those coming from the other direction may notice they need a bit more energy to make it into Johnstown.
