I hope so too. This trail will be a great asset to the city the way it runs throughout the city, not just on the periphery.

Just to be clear: this recent bridge donation is an existing span over the Guyandotte. The bridge over Hal Greer will be a new span.

Yes. I'm just trying to keep the PATH related articles together and not start too many threads for the same basic thing.

It's nice that Huntington is starting this project. It should pay dividends health wise for decades to come.
This is one case of "if you build it they will come" that is true. I've seen hiking/biking trails in use in many places, and folks will be pleasantly surprised at the response. And, for you younger folks, it is a good way to meet people.

The nicest thing is, it isn't just a hiking/biking trail. It is being planned to connect the neighborhoods to many of the largest employers in town. When combined with the share the road bike lanes, this will give Huntington a genuine alternate means of transportation for those living in town.

You will be able to get just about anywhere in town on a bike safely. It will also connect most of the major parks in town as well. This means that once done, rather than having to drive your bike to a trail head for access, you should easily be able to ride your bike out of your driveway and quickly get on to the PATH to go where ever you need. This will be very nice.

They actually had a meeting tonight to begin making bike maps for the city. This will be a great asset for city residents and MU students.

You should start a movement for an Ohio River trail connecting with the outstanding rail trail in Wheeling. I'd imagine Parkersburg and other towns would get on board with it too.

Not a bad idea CT. A River Trail the entire length of the Ohio River/WV border would be a good thing.

It would be neat but difficult though as the railroad through there is still in use. If all of the towns along the way would do their part though, maybe the state would fill in the gaps.
