Rail Explorers is hosted by the Cooperstown and Charlotte Valley Railroad. Railbikes leave from the 'The Milford Track' for a spectacular 12 mile trip, that's their longest ride yet. You'll journey through the Otsego County farmlands alongside the Susquehanna River taking in the sights of magnificent woodlands, and rumble across historic trestle bridges.

About the Railbikes:

The Rail Explorer bikes have 4 steel wheels, hydraulic disc brakes, pedals for each seat, and are comfortable, fun, and easy to ride. Although the Rail Explorers require pedaling, the magic of steel wheels on steel rails makes the experience very different from riding a regular bicycle. Each rail bike, available in tandem (2 riders) or quad (4 riders), includes an electric-assist option.
