I reported that I had ridden the Outlet Trail, but didn't make a separate blog entry for it. It's a pretty trail, dirt the whole way, well maintained. It starts in a small park off Elm Street and rides off the railbed until it crosses the Outlet. Then it stays on the railbed all the way into Dresden, at which point it goes up the side of the gorge to get up to the road level.

Blogging about this now, because I didn't do it four and a half years ago. Rode the Catharine Valley Rail Trail. It goes from the village of Watkins Glen, fairly close to the current end of the tracks, down to Horseheads. It parallels the Chemung Canal, part of which is still in water. There are a few bits of railroadiana on the way. A steel milepost, a few steel bridges. It departs from the railbed in a few places. In Montour Falls, the railroad went through the middle of an industrial plant, which is still in use and is currently fenced-off.
