Environmental Assessment- Design and Build Two Stacked Loop Hiking and Biking Trail Systems, Develop Three Trails on Existing Roads, Analyze Bike Use on Park Trails
The National Park Service is pleased to announce that the Hiking and Bicycling Trail Plan/Environmental Assessment (plan/EA) is now available for public review and comment.
The NPS has prepared a plan and environmental assessment to design and construct two stacked loop hike and bike trail systems in the Craig Branch and Garden Ground areas of New River Gorge National River. The plan/EA analyzes the potential impacts of constructing new trails and of allowing bicycle use on the newly constructed trails and select existing trails and administrative roads within New River Gorge National River. The plan/EA describes three alternatives and identifies the NPS Preferred Alternative (Alternative B).
