Rail-Trails West : California, Arizona, and Nevada

Description

Explore the best rail-trails--3 states, 53 trails, and nearly 300 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 West

Many rail-trails are paved and run through the most popular parts of town. Some offer an escape from city life, like the Mount Lowe Railway Trail, high above the buzzing Los Angeles basin. Others offer the pure sensory thrill of sweeping terrain, like Arizona's 7-mile Prescott Peavine Trail or Nevada's Historic Railroad Hiking Trail, which passes through five massive tunnels to reach the Hoover Dam. See majestic redwood groves, soak in Pacific Ocean vistas, and visit quintessential Western towns along these many rail-trails.

In this book, you'll find: Detailed maps for every rail-trail, plus driving directions to trailheadsIcons indicating the activities each trail can accommodateSuccinct descriptions written by rail-trail experts "Whether you're looking for a place to exercise, explore, commute, or play--there is a rail-trail in this book for you."
