Canal Days June 3-5
Saltsburg is celebrating its 35th Annual Historic Canal Days with live music, delicious food, fun games and activities for the entire family, and a spectacular fireworks display. Click here for more information.
Welcome to Saltsburg.
Nature and Industry have created this oasis in southern Indiana County. Saltsburg is located at the confluence of Loyalhanna Creek and the Conemaugh and Kiskiminetas Rivers. What made this town a great hub for the Pennsylvania Main Line Canal, now makes it a haven for those who love the water. The rails that once coursed through the heart of town have been transformed by the West Penn and Westmoreland Heritage Trails. Historic buildings have been made new again, housing home-cooked meals, gifts and our local museum.
Easy to find, this river town is the perfect get away from the city! Just a 45-minute, scenic drive will put you at nature's door.
There's so much to discover in Saltsburg. Our local rivers and trails make this the perfect destination for outdoor adventure! Here, the Conemaugh River and Loyalhanna Creek join to form the Kiskiminetas, providing safe and exciting paddling excursions for the entire family. See the remains of past canals and railways as you enjoy a bicycle ride or walk on one of our ever-expanding and scenic rail-trails. Fishing and boating enthusiasts can relax in a tranquil woodland backdrop at Loyalhanna Lake or Conemaugh River Lake.
When your adventure is through, browse a boutique or have a home-cooked meal at one of our fine local restaurants. Make it a day trip or stay the night. We have charming bed and breakfast options, as well as campgrounds for those of you who like to rough it.
