A May/June letter to the editor [“Different route for rail trail”] suggested looking at other abandoned rail right-of-ways that do not have working tracks on them like the old D&H line. I was at White Pine Camp last week and looked at where that right-of-way runs though Gabriels, and it is now a large power-line easement apparently.
But what about other abandoned rail lines? The Bloomingdale Bog Trail is over an old rail line and already used as a hike, bike, and snowmobile trail. Why not improve it and promote it? Where it crossed Route 55 there is not even a sign. And there must be others.
