Overview

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 for everyone to enjoy. Today rail-trails are found in every state and cover more than 15,000 miles nationwide. 1000 Great Rail-Trails: A Comprehensive Directory is a complete listing of rail-trails available for public use in the United States. These flat or gentle-grade trails are the perfect place to walk, jog, bicycle, in-line skate, horseback ride -- even cross-country ski -- and offer year-round opportunities to get outside for exercise and recreation. Numerous access points along the length of each rail-trail allow you to take advantage of as much or as little of the trail as you want.
