Discover your trails with Rails to Trails

Rails-To-Trails Conservancy is on a mission to create safe, public spaces where everyone can be active outdoors. From biking to hiking and everything in between, Rails-To-Trails (RTC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a network of trails from former railway lines and connecting corridors throughout the United States. Through repurposing abandoned or unused railway corridors, RTC has created hundreds of miles of multi-use tracks for bike riding, walking and a range of other recreational activities. Summer is the perfect time to discover your local cycling trails, while combining the serenity of nature with the joy of bike riding and RTC has all the information you need to plan an awesome day out!

E-bike Friendly Trails

E-biking is a great way to explore the bicycle trails while staying within your physical limits. The sometimes hilly and rough terrain can be challenging but doesn't need to be a limiting factor. Using an electric bike can make the experience less strenuous and more enjoyable no matter your fitness level. E-bikes are perfect for a social outing with friends or family, particularly if the little ones want to tag along for the ride. No matter if you are riding an e-bike or prefer a regular bicycle, always remember to use the proper etiquette while riding to ensure the trails are a safe and fun place for everyone. You can find out more about sharing the trails here.
