Note regarding Figure 2.10.1: The methodology for determining miles of potential rail trails is not specifically described on the Rails to Trails Conservancy website, but rail trails are usually created within the right of way of un-used railroad corridors. “Percent of Miles of All Rail Trails that are not developed” was calculated by summing current  and identified potential miles of rail trail to determine the percentage of all current and potential rail trails that have not been developed in each state.

U.S. Bicycle Routes are “established” by a state Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and the American Association of  State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). The suitability of each route is determined by each state DOT based upon its own criteria and there is no required construction of bicycle facilities along each route at this time.
