My Honey and I have started walking on the "Rails to Trails" here in Pennsylvania. One of the areas is close to home. A little town called Hellertown. We have been coming to Wagner Grist mill since we were dating. I'm not going to say how long ago that was =)
There is a beautiful old grist mill, millers pond, and a "crick" along the way. We walked on the new rails to trails. What a beautiful walk. We went back again for a long bike ride too.
We saw a red tailed hawk in the trees and a blue Herron. Reminants of the old railroad along the way, like signal towers and whistle signs. Old electrical poles with all the insulators in different colors.
My favorite spot is the bridge that crosses over the "crick" with a small water fall. The mill race for the grist mill.
I'm so happy that they opened this new rails to trails so close to home. I'm sure we will walk or bike ride here for many years to come~
