    Thanks for bringing back good memories of the Grass River. It was just down the
    hill from my family home in Massena, and we had a St Lawrence River skiff on it,
    and would swim in it as children. My dad’s store In Massena backed up on the
    Grass as it made its way to the St Lawrence River.

    Great to read this. I tried to bike from Massawepie to Horseshoe a couple years ago but must have taken a wrong turn as the trail became overgrown and not too bikeable. Reading your piece and looking at my track I can’t figure out exactly what error I made. Would it be possible to post or send your track?

    any chance you have routes on strava or ridewithgps or some just on a map? I’m trying to figure out this route, but I don’t know the area well enough.
