Rails and Trails

This site collects history, photos, maps and links to railroads, canals and related bike and hike trails in Ohio and neighboring states. USGS Map links (courtesy of Microsoft Terraserver) trace railroad and former railroad right-of-way. Information on this site does not convey the right to tresspass. Please respect private property and posted no tresspassing signs.

Excuse our "dust." This site will be moved to www.railsandtrails.com in an updated form as time permits. (Links to Terraserver maps have been updated and should work - 12/13/03)
