Secret Valley Explorers - Railbikes

Railbikes are fun and easy to pedal by people of all ages. Bikes seat either three or four people, so bring family and friends for a memorable adventure. Price is per bike, not per person.

Rail bikes are not for use by persons over 250 lbs. in weight or by persons under 4'6" in height.
For your safety and the safety of the other riders, we can not permit you to ride.

 Bring your friends for a leisurely, pedal-powered adventure into the tall forests of the Secret Valley, where you will cross bridges, chase creeks, and take in all the wonder the picturesque valley has to offer. Keep an open eye out for wildlife, including white-tailed deer, great blue heron, and bald eagles! Explore our rock cuts that were hand-dug by Civil War veterans in the late 1860s. Those rock cuts, which contain magnetic rock, spawned the first iron industry in the United States, provided George Washington with cannonballs, and later brought Thomas Edison to the Secret Valley for an invention that was not as successful as the light bulb.

 Railbikes are people-powered rail vehicles. The low coefficient of friction of our 150-year-old steel rails makes the bikes easy to pedal, welcoming persons of all ages. Our bikes seat up to four people, so bring family and friends for a memorable adventure. If your group is smaller than four people, we recommend chartering one of our three-seater bikes that allow a crew member to ride along with you to assist with peddling.

In our next generation of motorized rail bikes, all persons with disabilities will be able to enjoy the scenic splendor. Please follow us for updates during the season.

Railbikes will be stationed at a new location on the Colebrookdale line, and will no longer be at our Boyertown Train Station. They will be departing from the Glasgow Station, located at 1410 Old Glasgow Street, Pottstown Pa., for a four mile round trip, returning back to the Glasgow Station.

Larger groups can be accommodated also; Clubs, Camps, Chambers, office outings, team activities. Call 610-367-0200 or email with any questions you may have.

Prices are per bike, not per person.
