Finding where to park and get on the trail was a little tricky, but we did what we usually do... we stopped at a gas station and asked for some help. We found parking and hit the trail going toward East Brady.
The trail goes through town for a little bit and we had to stop at intersections and be mindful of traffic. It wasn't really any trouble though, and the drivers were always kind and patient. The trail was paved as we went through town, but eventually it turned to crushed limestone and was nice and shaded.
There were several neat stops along the way and a small campground that had a bathroom we could use. We rode until we got to one of the dams that had a lock, checked that out (from a distance), and then turned around for the long ride back to the van... and our lunch.
We really enjoyed this trail. It wasn't a very long drive to get there, the trail was nice, there were things to see along the way (the kids and Mike like that) and we enjoyed riding along the river. We look forward to riding more miles on the Armstrong Trail and seeing different sections of it.
Liza got a new helmet. Her head must have grown since last summer. She was complaining that the old one was hurting her head and giving her a headache because it was too tight.
We always end with a slushie. :)
