RTC's Urban Pathways Initiative (UPI)

This UPI encourages physical activity by bringing the active transportation and recreation options provided by trails to urban communities facing the challenges of obesity, congestion and scarcity of open space. Learn more and connect to a network of advocates and professionals from across the nation.

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy encourages people of all ages and abilities to get outside and get active on a rail-trail.

  • Make bicycling on a rail-trail part of your daily commute and get your workout in at the same time.
  • Take a rail-trail vacation and see the countryside from a perspective once enjoyed only by train conductors.
  • Instead of hopping in the car to pick up milk from the store down the street, hop on the trail instead.
  • Teach your kids to ride a bike on a smooth, level surface, or reintroduce yourself to the thrill of cycling you remember from your own childhood.

Get inspired and get on a rail-trail today! Find a trail near you on (powered by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy). And learn more about how making trails, walking and biking a part of your daily life can improve the quality of life for generations to come.
