Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors to build healthier places for healthier people.
What We're Working On
RTC gathered a team of national experts, public officials, trail and active transportation advocates at the TrailNation Summit to share best practices and real-world challenges.
Building Trail Networks
We’re working nationwide to connect trails and communities—creating trail networks through TrailNationTM projects that deliver incredible benefits for people and places.
Advocating for Trail Investment
With a federal infrastructure bill in play for 2018, and a renewal of federal transportation legislation only two years away, now is the time to advocate for trails.
Opening Day for Trails Celebration
This year marked RTC’s sixth annual Opening Day for Trails! On Saturday, April 7, 2018, people across the nation kicked off the spring trail season by hitting their favorite trails for a walk, run, ride or special event.
