A stroll on the rail-trail
After my backpack, I found myself in Tannersville for the day with no car. With limited options, I decided to walk along the rail-trail. Previously, I'd done some of the western part of it, and I didn't expect much. The western part, after all, passes along the lovely lake seen above, but the view from the trail itself isn't much.
The eastern half turned out to be much more interesting. It follows the old railbed alongside a creek, and much of it is attractively shaded with evergreens.
Of course it's flat and not very long (the entire thing is under 3 miles). It ends when it hits a road crossing; while the railbed continues, it is apparently on private land.
