Cooperstown, NY – April 10, 2023 – Located four hours north of New York City and 1.5 hours north of Albany, Rail Explorers in Cooperstown will open for the summer and fall seasons from May 6, 2023 to October 31, 2023. The Cooperstown Division features two tour options, including Milford Track which is a 12-mile round trip (the national brand’s longest ride yet!) that journeys north through farmlands and forests along the Susquehanna River, as well as the Charlotte Valley Express which is an 8-mile Southern roundtrip that also meanders alongside the River and goes over the majestic 200-foot long Portlandville Trestle. Both journeys incorporate an electric pedal assist system for the entirety of tours.

Rail Explorers Cooperstown’s depot is located in Milford, New York approximately 15 minutes south of downtown Cooperstown at 136 E. Main St., Milford, NY 13807. Nearby attractions include the Ommegang Brewery and Fly Creek Cedar Mill, in addition to the major attractions, such as the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Rail Explorers Cooperstown operates Thursday through Monday. There are no tours on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Ten 2-person Tandems or nine 4-person Quads are available and can accommodate up to 56 riders total. The Milford Track Tour start at $95 for 2-person or $175 for 4-person, while Charlotte Valley Express Tours start at $90 for 2-person or $160 for 4-person. Free parking is available for Rail Explorers at the train station.

Rail Explorers’ vehicles are custom-built and carefully engineered with steel wheels, hydraulic disc brakes, and the latest technology, focusing on safety, design and ease of operation, so that riders of all ages and all physical ability levels can participate safely. Guests have included couples young and old, groups of friends, and multi-generational families. This commitment to inclusion prompted the design of a custom electric pedal assistance system to overcome the difficulty of pedaling uphill, and led to a frame construction strong enough to have no weight limit.

Pets are also welcome! For pets up to 40 pounds, there is NO pet fee, and a dog mat will be included for FREE. Note only one pet is allowed per guest/group. Previous pet guests have included dogs, cats, lizards, parrots, and even ducks.
