Looking for a level trail where you can enjoy a brisk fitness walk, bike ride, or stroll with the family? All across the country, unused railroad corridors have been converted to public, multiuse trails. Here the experts from Rails-to-Trails Conservancy present the best of these rail-trails in California.

Many rail-trails are paved and run through the most scenic parts of town. Others, such as the Merced River Trail, offer rugged scenery on more challenging routes through wilderness areas. Enjoy sandy beaches, sea lions and shopping on the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail. Travel between two dams on the Sacramento River Rail Trail. Experience the varying personalities of the 25-mile Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail. No matter what your preferred mode of travel, you'll love the variety in this collection of multiuse trails!

In this book, you'll find:

  • Detailed maps for every rail-trail
  • Driving directions to trailheads
  • Icons indicating each trail's use
