Quick Facts


Similar projects are underway in hundreds of cities around the country, with a national organization, rails-to-trails conservancy spearheading the effort.
  • Did you know nearly half of all trips in the United States are three miles or less, and the vast majority of these trips are still taken by car? Trails and transit create opportunities to drive less.
  • Choosing to walk and bike instead of driving is a positive response to the twin challenges of climate change and expanding waistlines. Burn Calories, Not Carbon!™ It's good for your body and good for our world.
  • Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is already the largest transportation recycling program in the country — helping turn unused railroad lines into trails.
  • Now we’re taking those trails and the people and places they connect and championing a new future for transportation: active transportation. Active transportation is travel powered by human energy using trails, walking and biking.
  • To encourage active transportation, communities must create seamless networks of accessible trails, sidewalks and on-road biking facilities.
  • We believe that, working together with multiple partners, we can encourage more walking, bicycling, snowshoeing and more, leading to a healthier and more enjoyable lifestyle.
