Just Like the A.T.

The Bluefield (WV) Daily Telegraph for 22 January 2010 carries an article by Greg Jordan titled "Great Eastern Trail needs volunteers to build Mercer section".

In it, Jordan quotes Steve Clark, an extension agent with West Virginia State University in Pineville. The 1,800 mile trail from Alabama to New York

is like the Appalachian Trail, he said.

"It's the newest, greatest addition to the national trail system. We're excited to have it run through this area," Clark said. "It will have economic and health and recreation benefits."

So pitch in and help build the West Virginia section. Okay?
