The Lancaster Heritage Trail is four miles of trail that occupies a former railroad track. The link takes you to the listing on the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Web site.
I had heard about this trail and had never been on it. I finally got a new pump so that I can pump up my bike tires. I love riding my bike because it's a rather low impact workout. It isn't too jarring on my joints and my body. Don't get me wrong, I am flipping exhausted when I'm finished, but I can function. Of course, if I ride too long, my crotch is sore. How do these dudes do the Tour de France?
This trail is completely gorgeous! I love that I can ride my bike from my house and do the trail without too much trouble. I also love that I can park my car and run on the trail. It is marked and is four miles each way so I could make a long run out of it....when I get to the point that I am able to do long runs again.
Very peaceful and people are damn friendly. I love running or biking and saying hello or nodding or smiling at those who pass me. And being outside in nature - just wonderful.
I did hear a tractor. It made me giggle because I am reminded that I am a redneck. I love the country and love country living.
I will return to this trail.
