Explore 58 of the best rail-trails and multiuse pathways across two states

All across the country, unused railroad corridors have been converted into public multiuse trails. Here, the experts from Rails-to-Trails Conservancy present the best of these rail-trails, as well as other multiuse pathways, in New Jersey and New York. Explore four Hall of Fame Rail-Trails: the High Line, New York City's famed aerial greenway, and a trio of connected rail-trails--the Hudson Valley Rail Trail, Walkway Over the Hudson, and William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail--that form a seamless 20-mile pathway through New York's scenic Hudson Valley.

Learn about ambitious trail projects, like New York's state-spanning Empire State Trail and the 800-mile Circuit Trails network in Camden and Greater Philadelphia. And discover paths that offer views of some of America's most iconic natural treasures, such as Niagara Falls, the Great Lakes, the Atlantic Ocean coastline, the Finger Lakes, and the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains.
