|Trail access at Arlington|
Rob will tell you that no day trip is a success unless you begin your day in the Ma and Pa diner. And so, without a second thought we found ourselves enjoying omelettes at the BlueBird Cafe...family owned since 1958.
Just outside of Arlington the trail is under construction, so riders are forced to ride in traffic for a short distance. We found the drivers to be very considerate, but as always were grateful to be back on designated trail away from traffic and noise. The trail featured many scenic views and rest points. We simply can't recommend this trail enough. It is an easy ride, well maintained, great access points and lots of services along the entire length of the trail. Truly a gem!

Giggle of the Day:
One of the joys of rails to trails routes is it usually means FLAT, and generally the Centennial Trail is a very easy ride. However, there is one section featuring a slow steady climb - 642 feet. On the bright side, when you reach the top of the hill, you are made honourary members of the Robert M. Culpeper Blistering Saddles Cycling Team!
