Subject: DL&W Chester Branch trail
"IMG_1458_resize.jpg" - image/jpeg, 1200x1600 (24bit)

Was such a beautiful day today that our family and friends of ours decided
to go on a bike ride. I suggested we try the new DL&W Chester Branch trail.
It starts off at the Horseshoe Lake Park in Succasunna, and heads five miles
into Chester. Only the first two miles have been graded and tamped for bike
riding and walking, and that's what we did.

Surprisingly, the trail starts to gradually climb towards Chester (didn't
realize this). It's very nicely laid out, but there's little (none!)
evidence that this used to be a railroad. However, the northern part of the
line is still in use today by the Morristown and Erie, and the attached
images I grabbed shows the current end of track (which, coincidentally, was
the end of track in EL years as well). The switch in the distance goes to
the former Westinghouse Elevator plant - this was also the southernmost
customer in EL days.

If you're in the Morris County, NJ area and are looking for a
DL&W/EL-inspired ride, I highly recommend it!
