Sunflower Rail-Trails Conservancy is a group of volunteers working to help other organizations develop trails in the state of Kansas.
Members live in various parts of the state, and have personal involvement with active trail groups. They monitor the availability of railroad abandonments, try to get them rail-banked, and try 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. Sunflower Rail-Trails Conservancy believes 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.
Note: Sunflower Rail-Trails Conservancy was previously known as "Sunflower Recreational Trails".
