According to some recent news from the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, Michigan leads all other states for the number of rail-trail miles.
Michigan currently has 2,478 miles. Minnesota is a close second with 2,309 while Wisconsin sits in third with 1,788.
Not all of these trail miles are as well-developed as the Paint Creek or Dequindre Cut, but they’re open so they count.
It’s good to see Michigan leading the nation in a positive category.
