The Official Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Guidebook

September 2009

book

We have the new official rails-trails guidebook for the Midwest in stock. Within this 379 page book you will find detailed rail-trail maps, driving directions to trailheads, icons indicating each trail's use, and detailed descriptions of each rail-trail. Book price is $18.95.

From the back cover of the book:

Explore the best rail-trails - 5 states, 113 trails, and 2,400 miles - with this official guide.

Looking for a level trail where you can enjoy a brisk fitness walk, bike ride, or stroll with the family? All across the country, unused railroad corridors have been converted to public, multiuse trails. Here theh experts from Rails-to-Trails Conservancy present the best of these trails in the Midwest, home to the most rail-trails in the country.

Many rail-trails are paved and run through the most popular parts of town, such as Indianapolis's bustling 15-mile Monon Trail. Others expose you to regional history, like Ohio's 11-mile Holmes County Trail, whose corridor is shared with the horse-and-buggies of the local Amish. See the native tall-grass prairie, explore hardwood forests and waterways, and visit quintessential American small towns along the Midwest's many rail-trails.

Stop by the shop to pick up your copy and head to a rail-trail!
