Funding for Hatfield-McCoy Trails announced

U.S. Sens. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, have announced $678,344 for the Hatfield-McCoy Regional Recreation Authority through the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA). Funding will be used to expand the Hatfield-McCoy Trail System through the addition of 185 miles of trails in Lincoln, McDowell and Wyoming counties. 

Manchin said the trail expansion is expected to create 75 jobs and attract an expected $5 million in additional investments to McDowell, Wyoming and Lincoln counties.
