In today's Charleston Gazette in WV (11/02/02), there was a good article on the future development of the Hatfield McCoy Trail System in southern WV. Some of you may already know all this information, but I didn't. The article was actually on the opening of the Boone County Trail (added about 80 miles to trails). But it continued with the future development of the trails. The plans are to open 2,000 miles of trails in southern WV which will cover 8 counties. WOW!! [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] If they succeed at what they want to do, there will be no trail system to compare to ours!!! Right now, we have a little over 400 miles and it is wonderful!! A fifth trailhead and an additional 100 miles of trail will be added in the Pinnacle Creek area near Pineville. The agreement has already been signed. I am sure you probably already know that additional trails are going to be added in the near future to link Man, Williamson, Delbarton, Williamson, Matewan, and Gilbert!! Won't that be great! Trail loops in McDowell, Mercer, and Lincoln Counties are also planned. Furthermore, a horse trail 25-40 miles long will open in Lincoln County in the very near future. One of their goals is to link all trails. WHAT A GOAL!! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] The trail system is expanding so fast. It is already great!! It will be phenominal!!! I hope this information is helpful to people who do not receive the Charleston Gazette or those of you who are lookig for an amazing place to ride!!
