Bear Trap Creek is one of my regular dog walking sections.  It’s an 8′ wide paved trail that stretches from 7th North Street to Mattydale running parallel to I81.  The trail was built in the 1980’s and there has been much speculation about the extension of this trail in various future projects.  I’ve seen it documented that deer actually use the tunnel across from this trail to avoid the Thruway (I90) traffic.

    2016-06-29 – Return visit, but nothing has changed since the original post. Not a lot to look at along this trail, but the reward is that Zebb’s is “at the end of the rainbow.”
