West Orange Trail was created by John Appel
Just a word of caution. There is a bridge on the WOT between Chapin and the High School which is wood. It had rained a considerable amount Saturday but the roads and trail were dry Sunday AM. I cannot recall my speed while crossing the bridge but I was not pedaling or turning; perhaps 15-20 mph after coasting aways on the approach. I was almost across and my front wheel slipped out; I hit the pavement hard on the far side. I think the new wood either retains moisture or the rot retardant creates a film. Either way, it's like ice. Just a caution.
