    Thanks all. We're going to give the highlands trail as VA2DC suggests, if the weather holds. I'll be back to do Canaan Loop Rd and the Canyon trail on my NFE sometime, sans WeeHoo

    The weather held and Highlands Trail turned out fine. We drove to Thomas for breakfast at Flying Pigs, then drove to Hendricks and parked. We pedaled about a half mile up the Canyon Trail to see what we'd missed by driving from Thomas to Hendricks instead of taking the trail. The surface wasn't too hard on the kid, but I could tell my forearms would have gotten pretty tired after keeping the WeeHoo on a good line for 10 miles. So, we turned around and headed down the Highlands Trail, which was paved and empty. I think we saw at most a dozen other trail users on our 12 mile out to Porterwood and back. The ride highlight was being chased by a mother goose near the Kingsford plant. The river was very pretty in some places, but in general the scenery was typical of most rail trails. The more interesting views, I think, are higher up the mountains. On that note, we did drive out to where the pavement ends on Canaan Loop Rd., on our way to the Lindy Point Overlook. I'm looking forward to doing the loop road solo, maybe after the leaves fall.

    Awesome. Yeah, I was out there for Columbus Day weekend a couple years ago. My only real ride was Canaan Loop rd; it was fantastic!
