Rail Trails #7

I have a goal of riding every named Rail-Trail in New York State. There are many more railbeds not used for trains anymore which are also ridable. They are usually unnamed, unsigned, and unpublished. I speculate that this is because the owner is either indifferent or away. I've ridden some of these but I'm more interested in getting the named trails ridden first. I'm maintaining the list of NY rail-trails on my Rutland Trail website.

I'm also uploading them to OpenStreetMap.

Rode four rail-trails last fall so I'm updating my list of unridden trails.

Trails I've ridden:
