On Friday, I rode the D&H trail between Granville and West Pawlet, VT, in the rain. That wasn't so much fun after a while, so when I got to West Pawlet, I turned around. On Monday, for this ride, I went back and rode it from Rupert, VT, back north to West Pawlet.

Rode the NY portion of the D&H Rail Trail from Granville to West Pawlet. The trail continues to the south, but given that my entire ride was a rain that varied between drizzling and pouring, I decided that enough was enough. On the following Monday I came back up and rode the rest of it..

It's nicely maintained in the village, but just peters away on the north end. Eventually it becomes a farm road and then it's just overgrown.

Rode the Hoosick Greenway Trail on Monday. Only half of my ride was on the trail. It wasn't clear where the trail ends, so I just kept on riding until it because very obvious that I had left the trail. Ended up at Hoosick Junction where there was a train idling, waiting for a green signal to proceed.

Sure enough, just as soon as I started back south, I heard a whistle in the distance. The approaching train was blocking the stopped train's path. They would get the green signal just as soon as it left the block, and the switch was thrown.
