    Keep in mind that this is a pilot project.
    We needed to start somewhere & going with blue plated only was the best approach for this project. All parties involved felt that this would be the best way to manage this at this time.
    The goal is to use the pilot project to possibly build a bigger network in the future, which would include green plates.

    This is very good news, hopefully we can secure more agreements like this to ride in more places! Thank you OFTR for the hard work.

    It's all straight (got to remember it's a rail line!) two track, a combination of dirt/grass and crushed gravel through farmers fields and a couple of small villages. No water crossings other than the odd large puddle. Easily doable by any size adv bike. It's not challenging but it's a still a very nice route. Posted 50kph speed limits everywhere IIRC.

    Did the Port Elgin to Paisley branch tonight. Saw another OFTR member out there on a big GS having a good time :)

    Pretty great to have some legal trails on my doorstep now!

    Couple of pics attached for those curious what the trail looks like.
