The first section of the Northwest River Trail is now open. It’s only 2.3 miles at the moment, but eventually, it’s going to be part of a 14 mile long trail along the east shore of the Susquehanna in Northern Lancaster County.
There’s a nice writeup on the Lancaster newspaper’s webpage.
I took the monkey out yesterday to fart around on the Swatara Rail Trail. I had never ridden on this trail before, and it’s pretty rough. There were several blowdowns across it, and it was a muddy mess.
There were a couple of washboard sections that made me wish for a suspension fork.
