The Country Line Trail travels the path of the former Erie Lackwanna Railroad between Rittman and Creston. A highlight of the trail is a former Baltimore & Ohio freight station located just west of the trailhead at Kauffman Avenue, which will be refurbished and repurposed as a museum. The route provides pleasant views of the countryside and crossings over Chippewa Creek and Tommy Run. Two community parks are located near each end of the trail: Brooklyn Park on the western tip and Martin Fritz Memorial Park to the east.
Parking and Trail Access
Designated parking is available at the eastern trailhead in Rittman. In Creston, the trailhead is just south of the Creston Police Department on Brooklyn Street; a large public parking lot is available southwest of the end of the trail. There also are trailheads and parking at CR 504 and Kauffman Ave. in Sterling.
