The Wild Goose Trail

A tree, farm fields, and a bike trail extending into the distance

I spent yesterday afternoon in the country, biking about 30 miles on the Wild Goose State Trail.

The Wild Goose is another trail built on a former railroad right-of-way. One thing that’s not my favorite about many of those trails (and Wild Goose is prime example) is the dense foliage that often surrounds large portions of the path. That means points of scenic interest along the trail can be few and far between at times. Those long swaths of dense foliage don’t give you a whole lot of inspiration when you’re running out of steam toward the end of your ride.

It’s nice to see some of the neighbors helping that situation with some trail side plantings.
