Davis—A dedication to mark the completion of the Davis Trailhead was held on site October 13. The event was hosted by the Highlands Trail Foundation, Heart of the Highlands, and Town of Davis Parks & Recreation Commission. The trail connector will tie into the Allegheny Highlands Trail project once the Davis exit of Corridor H is complete.
The rail trail currently runs from Elkins to Parsons, Hambleton, and Hendricks and includes a section paralleling Corridor H near Davis. With the addition of the Davis Trailhead the trail has potential to connect all five of Tucker County’s municipalities.
The trailhead project was a collaborative effort of the Tucker Community Foundation, Town of Davis, and Western Pocahontas Properties with support from many entities. A WV Recreational Trail grant, along with corporate and private donations, provided funding for the project. The kiosk featuring two trail maps was designed and installed by Heart of the Highlands with maps and content provided by HOH and HTF. The trail connector borders the Davis Ball Field on Rt. 32.
