Trail Expert Network

Our Trail Expert Network is a resource for trail professionals to get relevant news and enhanced tools to help build and steward trails. As part of the Trail Expert Network, you'll receive Early Warning System alerts for rail abandonments in your area, and information about funding and other opportunities to help improve and connect the trail you manage and support.

Trail-Building Toolbox

Our Trail-Building Toolbox is a comprehensive resource for trail developers. Learn the basics of trail building, and find the help you need to ensure your project is a success.


A service of RTC, the Trail Expert Network Facebook group is for trail and greenway advocates, managers, professionals, developers and consultants seeking to get help with issues related to their communities and projects; to share ideas and solutions; to share information about trail and greenway issues of common concern or interest; to post success stories about trail or greenway projects; and to post job, conference and publication announcements.
