Just a stroll thru the brush / marsh on sandy built up rail bed. No tracks or anything like that. Plants along the way, identified with markers. At the waters edge are the old piers that the tracks would have been sitting on. Good walk...More

Searched for this trail but found it to be somewhat disappointing. Yes, the old railroad traveled this way but really could not see much until you reached the very end of trail.
