Description


Explore the best rail-trails--4 states, 57 trails and 1,100 miles--with the official guide

Looking for a level trail where you can enjoy a brisk fitness walk, bike ride, or stroll with the family? All across the country, unused railroad corridors have been converted to public multiuse trails. Here, the experts from Rails-to-Trails Conservancy present the best of these rail-trails in the Mid-Atlantic region

Many rail-trails are paved and run through the most scenic parts of town. Others, such as the 34-mile Virginia Creeper National Recreation Trail, travel along dense forests, open fields, and lush waterways. Some explore the area's history, such as Maryland's 13-mile Baltimore and Annapolis Trail. Tour the nation's capital, visit the site of a historic Civil War battle, and enjoy the serenity of the rural countryside along the Mid-Atlantic's many great multiuse trails.

In this book, you'll find:

  • Detailed maps for every rail-trail, plus driving directions to trailheads
  • Icons indicating the activities each trail can accommodate
  • Succinct descriptions written by rail-trail experts
"You can now throw away all your self-help books on fighting depression, losing weight, toning muscles, finding something to do with your kids, and learning American history. Just use this guide, find a great trail--and enjoy "
--Peter Harnik, Director, Center for City Park Excellence, Trust for Public Land.
