Rails to Trails

Old rail beds make great trails.  The rail bed is built for good drainage, so it can be paved with less expense.  Trains do not like sharp turns or steep hills—which makes for easy hiking, biking and cross county skiing.  The train engineer cannot stop quickly and must see far ahead.  From here you can see nearly a mile to the south.
