Sometimes its one step forward, two steps back. That’s how the folks at Ontario Pathways must have felt when they worked long and hard to get the bridge completed over Routes 5 & 20, finally connecting major segments of their trail. Then, before long a truck crashed & took the bridge out. Not to be set back for long, the OP volunteers again attacked the problem. A few more hurdles remain, but they think that by the end of June the New Flint Bridge will be completed, once again uniting Stanly to Phelps on the Ontario Pathways Trail.
That’s good news. If you haven’t hiked or biked Ontario Pathways you’re missing a community gem. The 20-mile long rail trail forms a big V with one leg connecting Canandaigua to Stanley and the other leg connecting Stanley to Phelps. You can find a map and all the details in “Take Your Bike – Family Rides in New York’s Finger Lakes Region.”
