Rails to trails? No

July 31, 2012
By Emmett Hoops

Trains. Railroads. No other form of transportation has been so loved and so hated, so fondly remembered and so hotly discarded from memory. But rails-to-trails is not about memories or transportation: it's about the great modern god, ENTERTAINMENT. Whether taking the Adirondack Scenic Railroad or riding your bicycle from Saranac Lake to Tupper (good luck with the scenery along that route!), it's all about what we do in our free time. Bicycling takes more effort than riding in a snowmobile, and riding in a snowmobile takes more effort than sitting in a train - but they are all forms of entertainment.
