We are extremely fortunate in this area to have a number of converted railway trails to explore. These photos were taken during a recent hike along the Lehigh Valley/Auburn Trails in Fisher. Both trails are part of the Victor Hiking Trails System. On this particular trip I made a circuit of about 5 miles. The main trails are crushed stone, but there are numerous side trails that run through the surrounding woods. One of these trails had a rustic bridge constructed by local Boy Scouts that crossed an area known as Beaver Creek. The bridge that you see in the photo is an old railway bridge on the Lehigh Valley Trail that spans the Auburn Trail. The woods and stream photo was taken along a beautiful winding trail that connected the two main trails. Many of the trees along this path were identified with plaques, making the traveling educational as well. Wildlife was abundant, including many birds such as this Woodpecker, Blue Birds, small songbirds and Chickadees. The Lehigh Valley and Auburn Trails can be accessed from a number of roads around Victor and Fisher. It is well worth the time to take a walk along these beautiful trails.
