Sandy Creek Trail

sandy creek trail 001
Sandy Creek trail runs 7+ miles up to Van, Pennsylvania  along a seamless ribbon of asphalt through deep green forests , over soaring metal trestles, spanning clear rocky streams and even through a cool tunnel.

PRETTY BASIC RAIL TRAIL.  But  suppose you want a slice or maybe an ice cream; now that’s a different matter. Now we have to get off our railroad and on to the other one.  Yeah, that one, the one we just bridged over.  Well, you say, “Railroads didn’t just  do that.”  (No pizza back then?)

So it was, dear reader, that we (meaning Al) schlepped two bikes down and back up these monster steps to provide you this novel photo op.sandy creek trail 047 No pizza was on offer, just murderous traffic in Franklin. We were happy to escape with our lives.

Oh, we (meaning Al) are honored to serve.

  1. I hope you were able to think "If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is" when you took the gratuitous landscape shot... because I'm sure traffic in Franklin wasn't "nice."
