Rails to Trails

We packed up our bikes and the grill and headed to North Bend State Park for lunch and exercise. This park has part of the Rails to Trails that run through it. 
Rails to Trails is a walking/horseback riding/bike path that use to be train tracks but have been taken away and now is a smooth (gravel) surface. It is 5,500 miles and runs coast to coast. 
This tunnel is number #13. It is known for the train wreck in 1956 where two people died as it emerged from this tunnel. 
I was so surprised with how many states have these Rails to Trails paths. 
It was such a nice day. Definitely got a little burnt! 
And it wouldn't be a perfect day without a playground to dominate.
