Oh boy, there’s a good chance many of us will push away from the Thanksgiving table feeling like we ate too much. (And very possibly we did.)

A walk after dinner will help you feel better. And, will get you away from your cousin’s annual post-meal diatribe on politics.

Or maybe you’re thinking tomorrow would be a good time to hit the outdoors instead of the shopping mall.

Ah, but if you are visiting friends or relatives, you might not know where the best trail is. That’s where this listing from Rails-To-Trails Conservancy comes in handy.

Plug in your ZIP code and it’ll give a list of nearby trails, their lengths, what sort of surface each has and all sorts of other good information.  Check it out.
