Review for Sunflower Rail-Trails Conservancy Inc, Lawrence, KS, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

We have successfully railbanked six corridors. We are working on adding two more corridors. The 6.5-mile corridor between Iola and Humboldt will be completed by June 2013. It is being developed by Allen County and Southwind Rail Trail who will also manage the rail-trail. The name of the trail is Southwind Rail Trail. It connects with the 52-mile Prairie Spirit Rail Trail in Iola.

Sunflower Rail-Trails Conservancy, Inc. (formerly Sunflower Recreational Trails, Inc.) was re-organized in 2000. It is an umbrella alliance of rails-to-trails organizations in Kansas, the Sunflower State. Member organizations work to develop and maintain rail-trails and other recreational trails. SRTC serves as an information clearinghouse. Currently, it is railbanking six corridors which will be transfered to local groups for development and maintenance. It publishes an online newsletter called Kansas Trails News.
