Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This rail-trail guide provides detailed maps and descriptions of a variety of trails in Arizona, California, and Nevada. Many of the former railroad corridors are paved, some run through cities and towns, some run through tunnels, others offer wide expanses of terrain, and others provide a combination of many of these features. The guide also offers driving directions to trailheads and other useful information for hikers, cyclists, skaters, and others who want to explore the trails. The book was created by 19 experts assembled by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

With 70 rural, suburban, and urban trails threading through 1,050 miles, Rail-Trails West covers 60 trails in California, eight in Arizona, and two in Nevada. Many rail-trails offer escapes from city life, like the Mount Lowe Railway Trail, high above the buzzing Los Angeles basin on a rail line vacationers once took to a mountaintop resort. Others offer the pure sensory thrill of sweeping terrain, like Arizona's 7-mile Prescott Peavine Trail. Still more juxtapose the natural world with the railroad's industrial past, like Nevada's Historic Railroad Hiking Trail, which passes through five massive tunnels to reach Hoover Dam. Every trip has a detailed map, directions to the trailhead, and information about parking, restroom facilities, and other amenities. Many of the level rail-trails are suitable for walking, jogging, bicycling, inline skating, wheelchairs, and horses.
