View Photo Gallery View Hall of Fame List

In 2007, RTC began recognizing exemplary rail-trails around the country through its Rail-Trail Hall of Fame. We select inductees on merits such as scenic value, high use, trail and trailside amenities, historical significance, excellence in management and maintenance of facility, community connections and geographic distribution.

Hall of fame rail-trails receive a variety of honors, including special signage to place along their trails, a Trail of the Month feature and a highlight in Rails to Trails magazine. View Hall of Fame gallery.
