The Official Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Guidebook for Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee
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 Southeast.
Many rail-trails are paved and run through the most scenic parts of town. Some pass through historical sites, such as North Carolina's mile-long Gold Hill Rail-Trail. Others offer an escape from city life, such as Georgia's Silver Comet Trail, running 50 miles from Atlanta's suburbs to Alabama. Visit historic battlefields, see the world's largest cast-iron statue, and watch beavers and herons along the Southeast's many rail-trails.
In this book, you'll find:
Detailed maps for every rail-trail
Driving directions to trailheads
Icons indicating each trail's use
Succinct descriptions written by the rail-trail experts
