Since Melonys back surgery this past December :-[, we decided to just turn a long trip into a series of short days.  Day #1 is our longest day in the saddle, and it's just 325+/-....So I start doing some mapping and ran across this....

The Seneca Trail.

Has anyone here ridden it?

Also....I've posted our possible routes for our 12 days of riding.  We'll be sleeping late, taking our time, and taking lots of stops for pictures and just general taking it easy. 

Anyone have any "MUST SEES" along our route, please...post'em up.

That looks like it will be a seriously good trip. Many miles of good roads and nice scenery.
When do you guys go?

Not being on a pc, it's hard to keep the maps straight, at least for me.
