Wilderness Press :: Biking :: Rail-Trail Hall of Fame
Rail-Trail Hall of Fame
Rail-Trail Hall of Fame 
A selection of America's premier rail-trails.

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, value of use, amenities, historical significance, excellence in management and maintenance, community connections, and geographic distribution.

These Hall of Fame rail-trails are found in 28 states and in nearly every environment—from downtown urban corridors to pathways stretching across wide-open 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 route.

In this book, you’ll find:

•    Detailed maps for every rail-trail, plus driving directions to trailheads
•    Icons indicating the activities each trail can accommodate
•    Succinct descriptions written by rail-trail experts
•    A look at the fascinating railroad history behind each trail

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy serves as the national voice for more than 160,000 members and supporters, more than 22,000 miles of open rail-trails across the country, and more than 8,000 miles of potential trails waiting to be built—with a goal of ensuring a better future for America made possible by trails and the connections they inspire.
