Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The County Line Trail travels the path of the former Erie Lackawanna Railroad between Rittman and Creston. A highlight of the trail is a former Baltimore & Ohio freight station located just west of the trailhead in Sterling 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 Avenue; a large public parking lot is available southwest of the end of the trail. There also are trailheads and parking at both Sterling Road and Kauffman Avenue in Sterling.

I bike this trail several times a week and really enjoy it! Nice wide, paved trail with beautiful views of farmland. Shaded in parts and has some smaller hills that make a challenge without being too exhausting. Enjoy! read more
