WOW Trail won’t be as idyllic as the Winnipesaukee River Trail

To The Daily Sun,
RE: Letter from Peter Davis on August 9; "WOW Trail is a Golden Gem that needs to be completed ASAP"

Peter, not to dampen your enthusiasm, but it is important to point out the difference between the trail you observed in Tilton and the one proposed for Laconia. As you stated, the Winnipesaukee River Trail is built along an abandoned railroad track but the Laconia WOW trail is proposed to be built next to an active railroad track, hence the requirement for a fence. There are no trees growing among the ties on the Laconia railroads. There is a big difference between riding your bike along an idyllic abandoned rail bed and riding within a few feet of a moving locomotive.
