Wilderness Press :: Travel :: Rail-Trails West: California, Arizona, and Nevada
Rail-Trails West: California, Arizona, and Nevada
Rail-Trails West: California, Arizona, and Nevada 
In this newest edition in the popular series, the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy presents the best of the West. With 70 rural, suburban, and urban trails threading through 1,050 miles, Rail-Trails West covers 60 trails in California, eight in Arizona, and two in Nevada. Many rail-trails offer escapes from city life, like the Mount Lowe Railway Trail, high above the buzzing Los Angeles basin on a rail line vacationers once took to a mountaintop resort. Others offer the pure sensory thrill of sweeping terrain, like Arizona's 7-mile Prescott Peavine Trail. Still more juxtapose the natural world with the railroad's industrial past, like Nevada's Historic Railroad Hiking Trail, which passes through five massive tunnels to reach Hoover Dam. Every trip has a detailed map, directions to the trailhead, and information about parking, restroom facilities, and other amenities. Many of the level rail-trails are suitable for walking, jogging, bicycling, inline skating, wheelchairs, and horses.

About Rails-to-Trails Conservancy
The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is a nationwide non-profit dedicated to converting former railroad corridors to public, multi-use recreational trails that offer easy access to runners, hikers, bicyclists, skates, wheelchair users, and equestrians.

The official Rails-Trails guidebook series is published by Wilderness Press and you can find out all the ways Wilderness Press and the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy are working together over on the blog.

If you want to find out more about Rail-Trails, check out the Conservancy's official website or give them a follow over on Twitter. Hope you get the chance to make your way to a Rail-Trail near you. They are so fun!
