Looking for a level trail where you can enjoy a brisk fitness walk, bike ride or stroll with the family? All across the country, unused railroad corridors have been converted to public, multiuse trails. Here the experts from Rails-to-Trails Conservancy present the best of these trails in the Midwest, home to the most rail-trails in the country.

Many rail-trails are paved and run through the most popular parts of town, such as Indianapolis� bustling 15 mi. Monon Trail. Others expose you to regional history, such as Ohio�s 11 mi. Holmes County Trail, whose corridor is shared with the horse-and-buggies of the local Amish. See the native tall-grass prairies, explore hardwood forests and waterways and visit quintessential American small towns along the Midwest�s many rail-trails.
