The public is invited to the ceremonial ribbon-cutting commemorating the construction of the Monday Lick Trail System Monday, October 30, at 1 p.m. at the Stillwell Park Pavilion in Marlinton.
There will be shuttles available to transport individuals to the trail system and bikes are also encouraged for those who would be interested in biking the Greenbrier River Trail to the trail system.
Located within the Snowshoe Highlands International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) Ride Center and Monongahela National Forest, the Monday Lick Trail System includes 27 miles of single-track bike optimized trails that connect directly to downtown Marlinton and will have a significant impact on the outdoor recreation economy. The construction is being completed in two phases by Appalachian Dirt and Rock Solid Trail Contracting.
This project is made possible with funding from the Appalachian Regional Commission and support from many other countywide and regional partners including: Snowshoe Highlands Area Recreation Collaborative, Pocahontas County Convention and Visitor Bureau, Snowshoe Mountain Resort, USDA Forest Service, Region 4 Planning and Development Council, Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, Downstream Strategies, WVU Extension Service, Mon Forest Towns Regional Partnership, Poca Trails, Pocahontas County Parks and Recreation and the Town of Marlinton.
