 The Official Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Guidebook for 39 of the country's most iconic rail-trails (2nd Ed., 2020)

All across the country, unused railroad corridors have been converted to public multiuse trails. In 2007 Rails-to-Trails Conservancy began recognizing exemplary rail-trails through its Rail-Trail Hall of Fame based on scenic value, amount of use, amenities, historical significance, excellence in management and maintenance, community connections, and geographic distribution.

These Hall of Fame rail-trails are found across the country and in nearly every environment—from downtown urban corridors to pathways stretching across wideopen prairie, along coastlines, or through mountain ranges. These rail-trails represent pioneers of the movement; they inspired trail development across the nation, or they’ve revolutionized how trails can impact communities along their routes.

In this book, you'll find:

  • Detailed maps for every rail-trail
  • Driving directions to trailheads
  • Icons indicating each trail's use
  • Succinct descriptions written by the rail-trail experts
