    What a great project to be engaged in. I'm looking forward to the output.

    Perhaps "Rail-trails" could be the next project. They are of course in some ways similar to greenways. I've read about a planned rail-trail near Franklinville/Ramseur (just this side of Asheboro) which has a small segment open already, and possibly the biggest project under construction is the Tobacco Heritage Trail in nearby Southside Virginia.

    Keep up the excellent and enjoyable work.

      Hi Foy,

      Rails-to-Trails will be part of the project (I think there are 9, currently, in North Carolina). My plan is to have the ATT up within a month, at least a basic map and information.

      Do you know who's behind the Franklinville/Ramseur project?


      • Foy Beal says:

        I stumbled upon the Deep River Rail Trail listing via It appears to be in the early stages of design and construction and will augment the Deep River Paddle Trail. Just a short section in Franklinville is open at present.

    This is WONDERFUL! Thanks! Could I suggest having the links open in a new window so that we don't lose your page when browsing the maps?

    • JoeMiller says:

      Sure. I think that's easier on my end as well. Thanks for the thought.
