Old Plank Trail: Worth Another Trip


The Old Plank Road Trail was chosen as the national October Trail of the Month by the Rails to Trails Conservancy. It’s well-deserved.

I went back to my favorite section, between Central Avenue and Ridgeland Avenue, for a walk today. This section has a marshy area on one side of the trail and a lake on the other. I saw geese, snowy egrets, cormorants, and a great blue heron who actually seemed willing to let me take several pictures on land and in flight.
