Wingo’s Rails to Trails mirrors conservation movements across the country. The goal of Rails to Trails is to promote a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors to build healthier places for healthier people. With Wingo’s history of rail lines, the City has been very forward-thinking to use those abandoned rail lines to benefit the community.
