Headquartered in Washington, D.C., with regional offices in California, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and a state office in Florida, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy connects, builds, protects and promotes rail-trails and their far-reaching benefits.
We encourage trail use and development by providing trail access, information, maps and resources free to the public through our online trailfinder, TrailLink.com.
The Benefits of Rail-Trails
Rail-trails create healthier places for healthier people.
They encourage healthier, more mobile lifestyles by making possible places to walk, bike and more. They develop healthier economies by promoting tourism and local businesses, and increasing property values. They support a healthier climate and environment by making active transportation a viable alternative to the automobile. They contribute to healthier, more vibrant community interaction, connecting people to the places they live, work and play.
Rail-trails create a healthier future for people of all ages and abilities, all across America.
