Exploring the American Northwest – Rails to Trails

We’ve discovered the Rails to Trails routes in the Pacific Northwest and have found them a great way to explore. As American residents of Germany, summertime finds us traveling throughout the United States. Our travels always involve distance walking of some sort, so we have had the opportunity to explore many of America’s Rails to Trails paths. What a great idea it was to convert unused railroad beds to useable trails. These trails are good for enjoying the outdoors and also for getting a little exercise. Most of the trails are fairly easy to traverse, being fairly flat or having slight inclines, due to previous train use.
