Rail-Trails Midwest Great Lakes: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin
by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy
With 113 rural, suburban, and urban trails threading through 2,300 miles, Rail-Trails Midwest: Great Lakes covers Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Many rail-trails run through the most popular parts of town, such as the 61-mile Illinois Prairie Path, which links Chicago-area suburbs. Others take you back in time for a look at regional history, like Ohio’s 11-mile Holmes County Trail. Every trip has a detailed map that includes start and end points, trailhead, parking, restroom facilities, and other amenities. Many of the level rail-trails are suitable for walking, jogging, biinline skating, wheelchairs, and horses.
The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is a nationwide non-profit dedicated to converting former railroad corridors to public, multiuse recreational trails that offer easy access to runners, hikers, bicyclists, skates, wheelchair users, and equestrians. The official Rails-Trails guidebook series is published by Wilderness Press.
