Bob and I have the good fortune to live near the Warren-North Warren Bike/Hike Trail. The trail is an abandoned railroad corridor that has been converted into an off-road trail for recreational use. The trail is 2.7 miles long. In February this year our local newspaper reported that the Warren-North Warren Bike/Hike Trail will be getting longer. A 4,300 foot extension is planned. I look forward to being able to go further on the trail. The trail is popular with bicyclists, walkers (with dogs, with children, with babies in strollers, or just plain walkers), rollerblading enthusiasts and joggers.
This afternoon Bob and I went for a bicycle ride on the Warren-North Warren Bike/Hike Trail for the first time this year. We didn’t ride the entire length of the trail today. I didn’t want to overdo it, as I continue to experience pain in my knee and foot. As a matter of fact, when we first started our ride, I didn’t know if I would be able to ride very far at all. My leg felt as though it would break if bended too much; that’s how stiff my leg felt. The stiffness gradually lessened, and I was able to enjoy the ride. I rode farther than what I expected. Bob said we rode 2 1/2 miles. Here’s a few photographs of the Warren-North Warren Bike/Hike Trail.
The forsythia are blossoming.
The bike/hike trail runs alongside the Conewango Creek.
That’s Bob on his bicycle.
The Warren-North Warren Bike/Hike Trail continues alongside Route 62, past Dairy Queen and, what used to be, Quality Market. (Quality Market closed its doors soon after Walmart came to town.)
