In addition to all the benefits of standard membership, including our quarterly member magazine Rails to Trails: Inspiring Movement, Trailblazer Society members receive:

  • Advance notices of and invitations to special events, bike rides, receptions and conferences;
  • Complimentary Rail-Trail Calendar;
  • Recognition in RTC's annual report;
  • Updates detailing RTC's work and recent accomplishments; and
