Explore the same magical rock cuts that were hand-dug by Civil War veterans in the late 1860s. Learn about the magnetic rocks that 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 lightbulb.

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 hand-crank, motor-assist bike is perfect for persons with disabilities.  

Rail bikes are fun and easy to pedal by people of all ages. Most bikes seat up to four people, so bring family and friends for a memorable adventure.
