Ohio - Wabash Cannonball Trail
The Wabash Cannonball Trail is a 63 mile multi-use recreational trail in Northwest Ohio. It provides non-motorized access to hikers, bikers, equestrians*, and cross-country skiers. The 12 foot wide trail surface varies within the different jurisdictions, from asphalt to hard packed cinder ballast. *Some juristictions may restrict horse traffic. The trail is a part of the nationwide movement to rejuvenate former railroad corridors into linear parks where people can enjoy the beauty and solitude of the outdoors while also providing a safe alternate mode of transportation between towns and villages along the route. There are more than 15,000 miles of rail-trails throughout the United States. View the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy web site for more information about rail-trails. Portions of the Wabash Cannonball Trail are also certified segments of the North Country National Scenic Trail, a 4,600 mile long hiking trail connecting the Lewis and Clark Trail in western North Dakota with the Appalachian Trail in upstate New York. The Trail is administered by the National Park Service.

Ohio - Wabash Cannonball Trail
The Wabash Cannonball Trail is one of Ohio's longest rail-trails, covering a total of 63 miles and traversing four counties: Fulton, Henry, Lucas, and Williams. So it should come as no surprise that the Trail is owned by several partners. With the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG) acting as coordinating partner for the project, the land-owning partners are Lucas County, the city of Maumee, Northwestern Ohio Rails-to-Trails Association, Inc. (NORTA, Inc.), the Metropark District of the Toledo Area, the city of Wauseon, and the village of Whitehouse.

Otago Central Rail Trail
New Zealand - The official website for the Otago Central Rail Trail

The Otago Central Rail Trail Charitable Trust manages this website as a non-profit project to help enhance your Rail Trail experience in this very different and breathtaking part of New Zealand. The 150km Otago Central Rail Trail thrusts deep into the heart of Central Otago, the only region in New Zealand with a continental climate; a magical stage for amazing performances by all four seasons.

This year-round cycling and walking trail is a public reserve owned by the people of New Zealand. Thereís no cost for using it, although donations can be made to the Trust at most station sites. Because the trail follows an old railway line, hills are not steep, making it accessible to most ages and those with a modicum of fitness. Thereís so much to enjoy, itís wise to allow at least four days to cycle its full length, a good few days more if youíre walking.

Pennsylvania - Chester Creek Rail Trail
The Chester Creek Branch, originally of the Pennsylvania Railroad, was constructed shortly after the Civil War and parallels the scenic Chester Creek. The railroad served the interests of local businesses and created opportunities for new ventures as it traversed the gently rolling hills and mature wooded areas of the Chester Creek Valley. During the Industrial Revolution, mills, factories, and warehouses located adjacent to the rail while new communities sprouted near rail depots. The Chester Creek Branch was a vital link in the economic development of Southern Delaware County.

As modes of transportation diversified patterns of development changed. With the advancement of the automobile and the interstate highway system, rail service fell out of demand, and many Chester Creek businesses relocated. After the Chester Creek Branch sustained severe flood damage in the early 1970's, the line was taken out of service and finally deeded to SEPTA.

Since service was discontinued, much of the rail corridor has become overgrown. Many of the bridges, however, remain intact, and the tracks and the ties were never removed. Meanwhile, many former industrial-use buildings along the corridor have been adapted to residences and businesses, or have been preserved as historical sites and recreational areas.
