The Rails-To-Trails Conservancy (RTC) has announced a cross-country, multi-use trail that will run across 12 states, from Washington State to Washington D.C. The project is known as The Great American Rail Trail, and Cedar Falls is located right in the middle! In fact, the Cedar Valley Nature Trail is designated as one of 12 gateway trails along the route.
While completion of the 3,700 mile trail is a significant undertaking and several decades away, 52% of the path is already complete and available for public use. RTC plans to work with state and local jurisdictions and organizations to bring new segments on line each year.
Inclusion on this exciting route is sure to bring additional  attention and visitors to our already notable trail system.  See GreatAmericanRailTrail.org for additional information.
