Part of WV Trail System Changes Name

Mercer County's portion of the Hatfield-McCoy Trails system has been named in honor of Pocahontas Land Corporation.

The new Pocahontas Trail System will add between 80 and 100 miles of trails to the system. It's expected to be completed by late summer or early fall.

Hatfield-McCoy marketing director Mike Pinkerton tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph that Pocahontas Land Corporation is a longtime supporter of the trail system.

Trail officials also are asking local ATV riders for help in naming landmarks in the other trail systems in southern West Virginia.
