CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — First the good news: A study is being done on the feasibility of building an ATV trail through Central West Virginia that includes Lewis, Braxton, Gilmer, Nicholas, Clay, Calhoun and Webster counties. Much like the successful Hatfield and McCoy Trail in the southern part of the state, the new trail would likely be a boon to local tourism and create new jobs and business opportunities.
Now the bad news: The proposal will be submitted to the Legislature next month. But lawmakers are working with declining revenues and would have trouble coming up with funds for a new project, no matter how promising it may be.
