Recycling railroads

More than a year ago, my wife and I discovered rail-trails. A rail-trail is a recreational pathway for walking, jogging, roller-blading, or biking that follows the right-of-way of an abandoned railroad.

We've ridden our bikes on several, all over the east coast and I am accumulating a list of others we would like to try.

The Fox News website has an article about rail-trails that gives more background info.

If you're interested in the concept, a little web-searching and reading at bookstores will give you all you need to know.

Anyone else tried rail-trails?
