FROM RAILS TO TRAILS
Reuse of old railroad lines and the multiple use of transportation and utility corridors offer outstanding recreation opportunities for walking and bicycling at a relatively modest price. This booklet is directed to community leaders, state and local recreation planners, and interested citizens who wish to preserve and utilize an important resource. Each step, from locating trails to developing a finished surface, is discussed. Four case studies illustrate citizen action in establishing right-of-way trails.
