Greg Midgley has been involved in developing rails into trails projects for many years. Currently he is the President and Secretary of the National Road Heritage Trail, Inc. here in Indiana. At the B & O Trail Association Annual Meeting held February 18, 2013; Greg shared stories about the challenges of trail building and how those hurdles were innovatively (and mostly cheaply) solved. He also clarifies the fact that it is a collective creativity, with many groups and individuals working together to solve the problems. From removable bollards to re-purposing a rail road bridge for pedestrian and bicycle users to blending and separating equestrian users; Greg shows how it can be accomplished.
