1000 Great Rail-Trails : A Comprehensive Directory
Where ribbons of steel once crisscrossed the nation, now there are ribbons of green. The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has helped convert thousands of miles of unused railroad beds to multiuse activity trails. Today rail-trails are found in every state. These flat or gentle-grade trails are perfect places to walk, jog, bicycle, in-line skate, horseback ride, or cross-country ski. In this official Rails-to-Trails Conservancy directory, listings include succinct descriptons of endpoints, mileage, surface, location, wheelchair accessibility, and contact information, including Web sites. Icons for each trail show the appropriate activities. State overview maps show the location of each trail at a glance.
