Ribbon Cutting Marks Opening Of SummitCorps Trail

Get on your bikes, and throw on your hiking boots, because the Arrowhead Hike & Bike Trail is officially open.

The National Park Service commemorated the official opening of the trail in Fayetteville, West Virginia, with a ribbon cutting ceremony held Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011, just down the road from the Summit Bechtel Reserve.

The trail was built over the month of July by Order of the Arrow volunteers as part of SummitCorps: The New River Experience.

Several dozen local biking and hiking enthusiasts turned out for the event to show their appreciation for the Scouts’ amazing effort. Representatives from the International Mountain Bicycling Association, which helped design the trail, were also present to thank the Arrowmen and the National Park Service.
