2016 Annual Report

In 2016, RTC celebrated 30 years as a leader in the trail movement. For three decades, we have served as the national voice for trails, setting the precedent that rail-trails are need-to-have community assets and establishing policies that ensure these trails are built. With more than 2,000 rail-trails and more than 31,000 miles of multi-use trails on the ground nationwide, RTC's focus is on linking these corridors—creating trail networks that connect people and places and transforming communities all across the country. Explore the difference—with all of your support—that we have made.
