I felt excited at the prospect of exploring, and skating somewhere new.&nbsp;</p><p>The initial half-mile of our trek provided smooth-as-ice asphalt under wheel, to the trailhead behind the Target. Even though the beginning of the trail is rather narrow and bumpy with two-foot-tall fire hydrants smattered here and there, sometimes in the middle of the path, the trail still gets you from A to B away from shoppers and cars. Almost 2 miles down the trail we joined up with the gnarly, roots-ridden path near the Lewis Recreation Center on Forest Lawn Drive and headed off North. </p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/21-miles-greensboro-atlantic-yadkin-trail-lawndale-target-strawberry-road-out-and-back" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/21-miles-greensboro-atlantic-yadkin-trail-lawndale-target-strawberry-road-out-and-back#comments Roadskater.net 2011 North Carolina (NC) Bur-Mil Park Greensboro Country Park Greensboro NC inline skating Lake Brandt NC Lewis Recreation Center outdoor Owl's Roost Road Paved trail rail trail skating Summerfield NC training http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1365 Sun, 14 Aug 2011 18:13:49 +0000 eebee 1365 at http://roadskater.net
