Special Features
There are 3 different sections to this trail, each with a different atmosphere. At the northern end (Chestnut St. entrance) you pass by the old stone bridge abutments. In the middle, it passes through a commercial section of town, part of which contains structures from the railroad era. At the southern end, the trail is very wooded, at the terminus, you can look out over the pass where a tall bridge would have been, and you can still see some of the old concrete pylons that supported the bridge.
