Rails-to-Trails Conservancy will defend rail-trails before the nation's highest court

Dear Trail Supporter,

I’ve got some big news: Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is headed to the Supreme Court.

The case pits a private landowner against established federal law that allows former rail corridors created from public lands to be preserved intact for public use — in this case a rail-trail that connects to the Medicine Bow National Forest.

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy was involved in this case last year, and will once again be filing a brief — this time before the high court.

This is a case that could have a lasting impact on the future of rail-trails across the country. A win would reaffirm the grand vision of our forefathers that explicitly held that these linear public spaces should remain of and for the people.

A loss would not only potentially block the public rail-trail providing access to Medicine Bow National Forest, but would also threaten rail-trails across America that utilize federally granted rights of way

As the only organization in America committed to defending the preservation of railroad corridors for public access, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy will be there in the Supreme Court fighting for trails and transportation advocates nationwide.
