Butler – Freeport Community Trail
Region: Pittsburgh & Its Countryside
Outdoor fun abounds along the 19-mile Butler – Freeport Community Trail. Soak in the aroma of wildflowers, do a little bird watching, enjoy a passport-oriented historic geocache adventure, cast your fishing line, or simply enjoy the scenery as you bike along this fairly flat trail nestled in the scenic wooded valley, linking the two communities. History abounds too — look closely and you’ll see the remains of old stone quarries, brick kilns, and other late-1800s developments still visible along the trail, including the Saxon City Hotel built in 1871.
