Students from Catlin-Gabel School in Portland, spent the day, May 20, cleaning up the Klickitat Trail a Rail-trails project. Rail-trails are multi-purpose public paths created along inactive or abandoned railroad corridors. Flat or following a gentle grade, they traverse urban, suburban and rural America. Ideal for many uses, such as bicycling, walking, horseback riding, in-line skating, cross-country skiing and wheelchair recreation, rail-trails are extremely popular as recreation and transportation corridors. To date, more than 12,000 miles of rail-trails have been created across the country. Rail-trails also serve as historic and wildlife conservation corridors, linking isolated parks and creating greenways through developed areas. They also may stimulate local economies by increasing tourism and promoting local business.
