Out at Touhey
I rode the abandoned railroad grade out at Touhey between Rd 9 NE north to where bridge #43 crossed Rd C NE. The route was a total of 3.2 miles which ended a few hundred yards east of the Rd C NE crossing. Pictures taken on May 9, 2015. I had permission to ride the grade by the owner.
Zoomed out map of route taken.
