BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - An organization has created a mobile app that will give people self-guided tours of a 44-mile scenic byway near Beckley.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/1YTlZFh ) reports that the Paint Creek Scenic Trails Association has created the app to give people access to 10 audio pieces with information on the Paint Creek Scenic Byway.

The byway features historic points of interest as well as places to fish for trout, ride bikes, view wildlife and paddle kayaks. The app will include information about Native Americans, coal mining and watershed restoration.

The app was developed by i-Treks of Lewisburg, West Virginia. Project director Catherine Moore says visitors will have a chance to learn about the area.
