Cyclist uses legs on York County’s rail trail to background editorial

Editorial writing, like news story writing, sometimes perks up when the writer/reporter gets out of the office to see what he’s writing about first hand.
I visited the site — about 10 miles of it — discussed in Monday’s York Daily Record editorial (See yorkblog.com post “Rail trail legs will boost city”), as I my rode my bicycle along the rail trail between York and Brillhart Station… .

I’ve ridden all parts of the rail trail, including a ride of the entire 40 miles or so between the two present endpoints: York and Ashland in the Hunt Valley, Md., area.
It’s an ever-increasing York County treasure, as I hope we reflected in previous York Town Square posts (search) “Imagine: 70-foot boat navigated the Codorus” and “York County rail trail extension to follow canal towpath.”
