It’s probably fair to say we’ve all traveled on the turnpike at least once during our lives. However, not everyone knows about the stretch of the turnpike – 13 miles, to be exact – that has been abandoned for decades. Once left abandoned and ignored, the stretch of highway now attracts hikers and bikers as the Pike 2 Bike Trail in Pennsylvania.
