Butler-Freeport Rail Trail Cycle

October 8 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Butler-Freeport Rail Trail Cycle

The Butler-Freeport Community Trail is a 21-mile crushed-limestone rail-trail. The southern ten miles of the trail lies within the Buffalo Creek Watershed, an important bird area that offers scenic waterfalls, beautiful trees, rock formations, and stellar views of the winding creek. This winding path preserves the route of Butler County’s first railroad, the Western Pennsylvania Railroad, which connected the City of Butler to the Allegheny River port of Freeport.

Experience this wonderful, well-maintained, and delightfully scenic rail trail with us. We will cycle approximately 20 miles roundtrip on the southern half of the trail, starting and ending in Laneville, PA (near Freeport), which is just a 30-minute drive north of downtown Pittsburgh. The turnaround will be about ten miles in, at the Cooper Station Caboose. The southern segment of the trail is quiet: long stretches of the downhill grade back to the trailhead. Biking experience is needed for this outing, and bike helmets and appropriate biking footwear are required. Please bring water to stay hydrated and healthy. We will meet at parking lot at the far end of the trail: Set your GPS for 62 Old Mill Road, and make a right into the parking area.

Bikes are not included in the ticket price. If cost or equipment is a barrier to your participation, please e-mail
