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.
