What others have to say about the trail

Thank you for doing such a great job with the trail. It has helped me get into shape again. I am 70 years young and enjoying the trail a couple of times a week. I would like to see more benches along the trail. It would help to have a place to stop and rest.

I rode the Nickel Plate trail for the first time this past Saturday from Rochester to Peru and back and I have to say this is a must ride trail. What a beautiful ride. Much was under a canopy of trees which made the trip quiet enough for casual conversation with the other riders in the group. Next we'll try the southern route.

Thanks to all who had a hand in this trail !!!!!!!!
