Trail Description

The Butler-Freeport Community Trail is about an hour northeast of the City of Pittsburgh. Open since 1989, this rail trail is nestled in the scenic wooded valley that follows Little Buffalo Creek to Buffalo Creek and on to the Allegheny River at Freeport. The trail is flat and easy to ride. Heading north from Freeport, you’ll be on a slight incline. The trail surface moves from crushed stone to dirt to asphalt. Remains of old stone quarries and brick kilns can be seen in the southern section of the trail. Heading north from Cabot, the results of late 1800 development are still visible. The former Saxon City Hotel, built in 1871, remains, as does an old, still active, lumberyard.
