Throughout the month of July, nearly 1,500 Boy Scouts of America Order of the Arrow volunteers traveled to the New River Gorge for SummitCorps: The New River Experience, a project to build hiking and biking trails in the area.
The finished product turned out 12.8 miles new trails, and on September 7, the National Parks Service celebrated the hard work of SummitCorps troops with a ribbon cutting ceremony marking the opening of Arrowhead Hike & Bike Trails.

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.
