Enjoyed the Johnstown Incline. Very large car (room for auto) trip to top of mountain. Excellent view of Johnstown and surrounding area. Gift shop and restaurant all at top of mountain. Just have to find available parking on side street at bottom. Seniors ride free!

This is a real gem- built in 1890 and still operating (with some restoration) in the same original form. The view is great. The ride is unique. If you've already visited the Flood Museum, or Flood National Memorial, the view from the top of Yoder Hill offers a good panorama of Johnstown and the valley that was overwhelmed by the flood. Another good reason to take the ride is the reasonable cost, and the knowledge that the Incline Plane is operated as a non-profit by the Cambria County Transit Authority, and the fare will help them keep this gem operating. If you want to go crazy, you can take your car up to the top with you, and drive around the Westmont neighborhood. Or, if you are a mountain biker, take your bike up, and ride down on the mountain biking trail (no beginners please! See "Friends of the Inclined Plane Trails" on Facebook) There is a snack bar and souvenir shop at the top, and a separate restaurant, Asiago's.

As a Johnstown native, we often take the Incline for granted. Kids love riding it and the view from the top is great. Good restaurant at the top and bike trails. Also an ice cream stand at the top.

Riding the Inclined Plane at night gave us a special view of the light of Johnstown. The Round trip is not inexpensive but a worthwhile experience. We had the car to ourselves. We were surprised to learn you could bring your automobile on the Inclined Plane. Plan your parking ahead of time. Bring a camera.

Didn’t really know what to expect, but was really interesting to see it and watch it in action. Didn’t ride it because there was wedding party doing pictures and they rode it down.
