Jane Addams trail
Sunday afternoon we did what I get the urge to do every fall...
It was cold, not much wind and the sun was shining so it turned out pretty nice.
The Jane Addams bike trail isn't far from us. This trail runs from just north of Freeport to the Wisconsin state line on an old railroad bed. There was a good amount of bicycle traffic going north so we headed south on the unpaved section. The part of the trail we walked runs between farmfields and the Pecatonica River.
At the south end of the trail was an old railroad trestle that Dan has been wanting to see.
It was an easy walk, about 1-1/2 miles round trip from the parking area on level terrain so definitely not anything strenuous. If you ever get north of Freeport, go check it out.
It's a great spot to crunch leaves!
