For 8 weeks only between April 21 and June 15, 2016 Rail Explorers is relocating to Wilmington, Delaware!
Join us on the rails to celebrate the Wilmington and Western Railroad's 50th anniversary the fun and innovative Rail Explorers! Book now to explore the winding Red Clay Creek near the famous Brandywine Valley on a gentle and meandering 5 mile ride. On the round trip excursion (2.5miles each way) the rail explorers glide through historic estates, across old trestle bridges with the creek flowing gently by, and roll through the dappled sunlight of old growth hardwoods. Explore this beautiful area from a new perspective. Rail Explorers brings together the freedom of the wilderness with the magic of the rails to create an unforgettable experience.
The round trip journey takes approximately 90 minutes, and includes a 15-20 minute break while the explorers are turned around for the return journey. Riders can bring a snack to enjoy at the Mt Cuba Center picnic area while they wait.
Rail Explorers opened in the New York’s Adirondacks in July 2015, and tours were quickly sold out. In just 120 days of operation, almost 14,000 people traveled from far and wide to experience this unique, fun activity. Now in our 2nd year Rail Explorers is excited to bring this unique experience to the State of Delaware. Rail Explorers plan to open a year round operation in Delaware in the Spring of 2017.
All Delaware Division tours depart from Rail Explorers Delaware: 200 Gun Club Rd, Hockessin, Delaware, 19707. Bookings are available online, or call our Delaware office on 302-601-0888.
Guided but Solitary
EAch Rail Explorers tour has a trained guide at the front and in the last rail explorer car. Tours depart on a set schedule, with all explorers leaving together. However, once out on the rails the tour is spread out, with up to 100 feet between you and the bikes in front and behind. The front and rear guides ensure that everyone arrives safely, but the distance between the bikes allows everyone to go at their own pace and enjoy the magic of riding the rails in solitude.
Access for everyone
The rail explorers are easy to pedal, the terrain is mostly flat and the ride is relaxing and enjoyable. Everyone can enjoy this activity: families with young children, couples, groups of friends and the elderly.
