CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Volunteers are working to complete the final 30-mile segment of West Virginia's 330-mile Allegheny Trail.

The trail runs from the West Virginia-Pennsylvania border near Bruceton Mills to a junction with the Appalachian Trail in Monroe County.

The West Virginia Scenic Trails Association has been working on the trail since the hiking group was created in 1974.

Association president Brian Hirt tells the Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/1dFoPcr ) that most of the remaining segment will be located in Allegheny and Craig counties in Virginia.

Hirt and 10 other association members recently marked a route on U.S. Forest Service land on the Virginia slope of Peters Mountain between Sweet Springs and Paint Bank, Va.

Trail coordinator Doug Wood says the Forest Service will check the route and make any changes before approving it.
