    It may not have been all that old, or all that abandoned, but with those tires, and this brain, the steep part on the other side of the pass (not shown) kicked my butt (also not shown) :D

    So this has a bit of a back story - I was riding a trail in North Wales, thinking it was strange that it was occasionally paved with huge, flat rocks... I then went over a hill and saw an old castle! Some information boards had been put up - turns out that the castle dated back to the 13th century to protect the trail, which had been used even before then for Welsh soldiers to cross through the mountains - no doubt to keep us marauding English away!

    This section was, then when it "offically" became rte 66, they paved it, but due to low ussage after the rte moved again, they put gravel over the top as its cheaper to maintain.

    Hey let's do a thread on abandoned railroad beds!! The mighty MoPac used to run right through my family's farm here in NE Texas. I used to race the trains on my cr125 when I was in middle school. Anyway I think it would be a neat thread.
