Publisher Description

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.

In this book, you'll find detailed maps for every rail-trail, plus driving directions to trail-heads, icons indicating the activities each trail can accommodate, succinct descriptions written by rail-trail experts, and 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-trail 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.
