The "Save the Trail" effort damages more than just railbanking. When they argue that a trail will be "devastated", "unsafe", and "unattractive" unless it is entirely in a full park setting, they are arguing that trails are only useful for recreational purposes in parks. Efforts to build political support for trails like the MetBranch Trail or ICC trail are damaged by this very limited and self serving vision of what trails can do. Even the W&OD trail would fail under their limited vision, because it is under power transmission lines instead of under trees and adjacent to roads in places.
