Abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike, Breezewood PA

Mike and I went out and road the abandoned Pennsylvania turnpike trail near Breezewood yesterday, known also as the Pike 2 Bike trail.  The entire ride ended up being a little over 17 miles out and back and featured some really pretty scenery off to the sides of the road and some very cool tunnels to explore.  The road surface was pretty good and only a few small sections were covered in gravel.  There were a few singletrack trails off to the sides, and some lightly used ATV trails, might be fun to explore off-road as well.

Good times, I'd recommend taking a look if you're in the area.
