There are no facilities located on the trail, and off-trail facilities are limited to those provided by nearby stores and public buildings. Those few trail signs that do exist have been provided by the local snowmobile club, and these signs are not maintained for warm weather users.

Mileage Chart & Detailed Trail Information

The following railroad mileage chart also serves as a table of contents for the detailed rail-trail information and associated pictures. Each page begins with the historic name of the former railroad station, and continues with detailed information about the trail on either side of that railroad station, to a point roughly half-way to the next railroad station. The page then concludes with a set of icons representing the services and points of interest that are within a reasonable distance of the trail.
