All the unused tracks around here have been converted to hiking and biking trails. It's given the muggers and murderers new territories. Railbiking looks like it'd be enjoyable, tho, out enjoying nature and scenery and stuff.

I don’t know about those trestles. Loose you’re center of gravity a little to the right and over you go.

It's all fun and games until you hear that horn when you're on the middle of that bridge.

Now that looks like fun! I agree with others, that old wooden trestle bridge looks frightening. I've walked across much shorter trestles, but nothing like that one.
