Looking for a way to enjoy the outdoors, get some exercise, and have fun too?
Come ride the Buffalo Creek Railbikes!
Nature enthusiasts, birders, cyclists, and rail fans alike are sure to enjoy this self-propelled physical adventure. Experience a unique perspective of nature, riding comfortably on a four-wheeled people powered railbike.
The 12 mile round trip takes approximately 2 ½ hours and travels at a leisurely pace of 5-7 mph over a six-mile portion of the Buffalo Creek Railroad with scheduled stops so you have the opportunity to disembark to truly experience the wilderness and history of the trail.
Great for families and group events!
With four seats, four sets of pedals and only a slight grade the cars move along with only a moderate amount physical effort. Solid iron rails guide you. No steering required. This allows riders to enjoy the scenery without fear of hitting anything. The only sound you hear is the reassuring rumble of the wheels punctuated by a rhythmic " clickety-clack" every few seconds as you pass over a rail joint.
The first leg of the trip is less than 1% upgrade and the pedaling effort is noticeable, but not too much. The trip back is mostly downhill.
*Ages 10 years and up*
This is a physical adventure. With a leisurely pace, most guests are able to pedal the barely noticeable grade. However if at any point you can’t pedal, we can hook your rail bike up to the train and tow you.
Rail bikes and rail cars all leave together and travel together as a group so your whole family can enjoy the trip. Our rides aren’t just for sight-seeing. At the turnaround point, riders will have time to enjoy the view as the crew turns the rail-bikes around for the trip back. Bring your pole and fish in the trout stocked Buffalo Creek, or wear your swimwear to take a dip in the cool waters.
Come prepared to enjoy nature. Closed toed shoes, and comfortable, loose fitting clothing suitable for hiking or cycling are recommended. Bring wet weather gear if rain is in the forecast.
Come prepared to enjoy nature.
Please no rushing, just sit back and enjoy the ride.
