California Guidebook Sneak Peek

A new edition of Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s (RTC’s) “Rail-Trails: California” guidebook is underway, highlighting dozens of the state’s top rail-trails and other multiuse pathways. To ensure accurate information for the guidebook, teams of RTC staff visited the Golden State this spring and summer to experience these trails firsthand. Take a scroll through a few of their photos for a sneak peek at the famed beaches, verdant forests, rugged canyons and vibrant cities that you’ll find within the guidebook’s pages—and stay tuned for its release in spring 2023.
