Kinzua Valley Trail

We went on a bicycle ride the morning of Saturday, August 31st, on the Kinzua Valley TrailBe sure to click on the link given here for a trail description and map.

We parked at the eastern trailhead in Westline, and rode as far as Forest Road.  We did not ride to the Red Bridge Bank Fishing Area that was mentioned in the trail description. 

There is a nice picnic area located at the Westline trailhead.
Note the unique BBQ Grill
A piece of history can be found at the Westline trailhead. The Kinzua Valley Trail follows the route of the former Kinzua and Hemlock Railroad (later Valley Railroad).
We crossed over Thundershower Run on this bridge.
Thundershower Run flows into Kinzua Creek

This was one of a few runs that flowed into Kinzua Creek.

The trees along the trail here created a tunnel-like appearance.

We rode 5.5 miles each way.  This trail was a bit challenging for me, as there were frequent slight inclines.  The crushed-stone path was more challenging for me too.

My name is Linda. I am happily married to Bob, whom I married in September 1998. We have a daughter (my stepdaughter), who blessed Bob and me with twin granddaughters in May 2012. My interests include spending time with my family and friends, riding the motorcycle with my husband, bowling, bicycling, walking, attending festivals, photography and travel. I love taking photographs. I am a hobbyist photographer. My camera of choice is a mirrorless interchangeable lens Olympus camera. I love to travel as well. I lived in Germany for almost 3 years, while in the Army, and visited many European countries. I have toured Europe two additional times since returning stateside. I lived in Australia for 3 months. I vacationed in the Bahamas (Nassau) one time. I would like to see more of the U.S., as well as return to Europe. I wouldn’t mind seeing the world! FAVORITE MOVIES: I like all types of movies — comedy, romance, action, thriller and horror. FAVORITE MUSIC: My favorite type of music would have to be country, judging by the fact that my CD collection contains mostly country artists such as Alabama, Clint Black, Garth Brooks, George Strait and more. I like music by Green Day, 3 Doors Down, and Matchbox 20 too. FAVORITE BOOKS: I tend to read romance novels, although I enjoy a good horror every now and then. My favorite romance writers include Belva Plain, Nora Roberts, Nicholas Sparks, Danielle Steel, Robert James Waller, and Phyliss A. Whitney. My favorite horror writers are Stephen King and John Saul.
