Greenway Corridor

I grew up along the southern terminus of the Greenway Corridor in Concord, when it was the old B & O Railroad. I witnessed the end of the age of steam, watching and listening to those fire-breathing monsters laboring up the grade to Chardon,
blowing the whistle for the Girdled Road crossing behind our house. I am surprised at how many people I've talked to on the trail that never realized it was formerly a railroad bed. I hope that the two seperate trails are someday joined together, providing unbroken access to the Greenway in Geauga County.

Just discovered this last fall when we were looking for Chairfactory Falls. This is a beautiful painting of a beautiful place for walkers to enjoy. We are blessed with so many great Metroparks.
