Hatfield-McCoy Trail System Coming To Lincoln County
The McCorkle area is perhaps one of the more peaceful places in Lincoln County, but residents wonder how long that will last.
The Hatfield-McCoy Trail System is coming to Lincoln County. Nearly 80 miles of trails have already been mapped out. County leaders must now choose a trailhead where folks can park their vehicles and ride the trail, and they are leaning toward the McCorkle area where Darlene Adkins lives.
"There is going to be a lot of noise and changes through here, and I don't like that either. I don't like the way they fly up and down this road. They do that already. We don't need a bunch more doing it," said Adkins.
"The trailhead is the key to success for any trail system," said Farris Burton, a project consultant for the Lincoln County Commission. He is also a member of the Hatfield-McCoy Regional Recreation Authority.
Burton said two acres are needed for the trailhead, and it needs to be as close as possible to the actual trail system. He adds officials are open to other possible trailhead sites because the trail system will be an economic boost for Lincoln County.
"We have people who are already committed to building cabins, places to stay, places to eat. We have people from outside the county who are interested in leasing property or buying property to construct cabins, lodging, that type of thing," said Burton.
"It's going to drag in a bunch of strangers around our kids," said Adkins, who said she's not against the trail, just not in her backyard.
Burton said the Hatfield-McCoy Regional Recreation Authority has put up $200,000 for the trail system plus another $100,000 for construction. That's expected to start in the spring and be finished by fall.
Burton said the county is also working to put another trail in the Harts community.

The old mccorkle school will be a great place. The building. Is not being used to help the people of the area any more. According to the lady in charge of the Outreach there the Board over building wants the building closed anyway.

Just another place for the toothless inbread to meet on thier 4-wheelers and get drunk. Then have an accident and have the real tax payers pay thier med bills. Maybe the Coal River Circle Jerk Group can help you with the trail. They have cleaned up the river so well. Just look at the trash now, its all piled on the banks now. LMAO
