The Sunflower Rail-Trails Conservancy is a group of volunteers working to help other organizations develop trails in the state of Kansas. We monitor the availability of railroad abandonments, work to get them rail-banked, and work to find interested local people to begin development.
Trails are places where families can enjoy the beautiful outdoors together. They are places where individuals may safely and healthily exercise. Trails, rail-trails particularly, also provide in modern times the original, essential purpose: to link communities together. We believe that an essential element of the health of present and future Kansas generations relies upon opportunities and encouragement towards an active lifestyle; and that an active lifestyle depends upon places where activity can occur.
We believe that Kansas, with its rich history as the crossroads of the nation, is uniquely positioned to develop a comprehensive rail-trail network.
Help support our vision of Kansas as the nation’s leading rail-trail state!
