OAK HILL, W.Va. (AP) - The City of Oak Hill has developed a trail concept which will connect its Main Street with more than 100 miles of trails within the New River Gorge National River.

The Register-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1So58t6) the proposed trail would pick up the White Oak Rail Trail, go up Central Avenue to Main Street, cross the U.S. 19 bridge and cut through a field along the downtown exit.

The Hamiltons, a local family, have expressed willingness to donate property for an overlook beyond the field.

Oak Hill City Manager Bill Hannabass says the trail could help the city to attract outdoor-related industries to the area.

He says the city will apply for Division of Highways grants to design the trail.

An engineer will provide an estimate for the project next week.
