Explore 57 of the best rail-trails and other multiuse pathways in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia.

All across the country, unused railroad corridors have been converted into public multiuse trails. Level and accessible, these paths are ideal for a brisk fitness walk, bike ride, or stroll with the family. In Rail-Trails Mid-Atlantic, the experts from Rails-to-Trails Conservancy present the best of these routes, as well as other multiuse pathways, in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia. Many rail-trails are paved and run through the most scenic parts of town. Others, such as the 34-mile Virginia Creeper National Recreation Trail, traverse dense forests, open fields, and lush waterways.
