Human history and natural history are visible from trails. The old railroad routes through a town can show a lot about how the town developed, what it was like long ago. When you go through a town by bicycle on an old railroad route, the place looks very different than from the customary perspective of the car and the highway.

—PETER HARNICK, Co-founder, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, 1987
