Had about an hour to run this afternoon and decided to hit some old/new spots in Rutland. I've run the rail trails there previously, but it must have been about 3 years since I've ran them. The first one ended abruptly after about 1.5 miles. Just ended....so, I hoped in the car and headed to the next section just down the street aways. Driving away, I actually remembered telling myself not to run there many years ago due to its shortness.
The next rail trail went on longer. I hit a newly created section that included an underpass going below a major roadway. I remember hearing news about this and how much it would cost. Anyway, I traveled for another 200 yards or so and then the trail just ended at the intersection of street. Not sure where to go or what to think, so I turned around.
Thought to myself, an underpass costing many thousand dollars to add 200 yards to the rail trail???? Met a mt. biker on my way back and he said if I went right about 100 yards at the street intersection, the rail trail continues for another 11-12 miles. Good thing there were signs telling me this.....
Will definitely need to check out the rest of this rail trail asap!!!!
