The focus is on development of trails for motorized travel. An effort will be made to develop the trails and amenities witth All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) and Utility Terrain Vahicles (UTV) in mind. However the trails will be available for use by horseback, mountain biking, and hiking as the users see fit. Necessary safety precautions and signage will be utilized to promote safety for all motorized and non-motorized users of the trail.

Property Ownership
The proposed trail system will utilize abandoned logging and mining roads in some areas along with existing OHV trails located throughout the region. Much of the trail system will be located within property already owned by Letcher County and TECO. TECO as agreed to make available the necessary property for the trail system.

Natural Features
Elevations vary greatly along the proposed trail system, from 2,500 ft. MSL near the Pike County line, to approximately 1,200 ft. MSL near Neon. Many of the peaks and ridges are ideal locations for scenic overlooks.

Along with the boost to existing businesses, trails may foster the development of additional support businesses. Maintenance and fueling stations may develop along the trails and at trailheadsd, possibly with ATV rental services. Additional lodging may develop in the form of RV parks, campsites, and cabins.

Any maps available yet? Any idea when all this might begin? Are the trails gonna hit any of Pine Mountain? I think that's where we need to aim. There's lots of space, virtually no houses, and we could link up with Pike County and possibly Harlan County.

neon is not 4 wheeler friendly unless you are a friend or family of the cops. neon never has anything for the kids to do and then everyone grips about the kids getting into trouble.kids need things good to do.

how about access to the fishpond area, atv's along US 119 are not likely to be allowed. will there be additional trailheads? Such as Ramey Fork? How will access be from the Neon area? Are the trails going to tie into the Pine Mtn. area? There are some pretty good pieces of trails from Jenkins to Elkhorn City, can it tie into these? And what about the existing trails from Mayking into Flat Gap and beyond? And over into Knott County ... thru Beaver Dam or Buck Creek? The list could go on and on with some support from the community and the politicians.
