In Praise of Rail Trails

Santa Fe Rail Trail

Santa Fe Rail Trail

I went running on the Santa Fe Rail Trail earlier this week, and I have to say that these trails that run alongside (or on paved-over) railroad tracks are just fantastic. When I’m running in a new city that has one, I’m able to find my way, see parts of the place I might not see otherwise, and measure the distance easily.

I’ve now run on these trails in Massachusetts, Washington, New Mexico and California (that I remember). They seem a great way to take advantage of space and introduce travelers to new parts of town.

That is all.
