Nov.27 2015. 28mRode today with my neighbor Jack. We drove out to the McDonald Trestle to begin our ride, with the plan of seeing the new bridges at Route50/ Venice and also at Valley Brook Road.
It was a very nice day, 60F. There were a few people out, not as many as I expected but perhaps: Black Friday n'at.
As we rode this stretch I realized I kept crossing bridges where once there was an ersatz path down to the street, and an at-grade crossing, followed by a scramble up a hill to rejoin the trail on the other side. Not anymore; so many bridges.
I've put a circle over each of the major bridges on this trail segment. Most of them have only been opened within the last two years. Major progress.
