Once a railroad line, the Rock Island Corridor could be converted into one of the longest rails-to-trails projects in the country. The Rock Island Trail would stretch 144 miles across Missouri from Windsor to Beaufort, connecting with the Katy Trail in Windsor. Mark Chamberlin, a dairy farmer, and his neighbors worry about how having this trail run through their land could affect their livelihoods. More than a mile of the long unused Rock Island Railroad runs through Chamberlin’s property. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the Missouri Central Railroad will have until the end of 2019 to reach an agreement over the fate of the Rock Island Corridor.
