The trail that used to be a rail

Email News Alerts

Although I live in the woods, my awareness of nature has been expanded by a trail four miles distant that follows the path of an old rail bed. 

I remember hearing trains rumble in the distance from my basement bedroom as a boy. However, the last train probably ran 25 years ago. 

The change of the rail bed into a trail for ATVs, snowmobiles, skiers and middle-aged people like me who run from the doctor has allowed something good to come of the loss of trains.
