This is probably the best trail guide available about our Wild, Wonderful West Virginia. Kathleen Panek, Executive Director, West Virginia Rails-to-Trails Council Nothing can compare to the eerily exciting experience of riding your bike through an old train tunnel where you feel the cool, damp air embrace you and the only sounds that exist are the echoes of gravel beneath your tires. To discover something is to experience it. Let this book be more than a guide for riding a rail trail. Let it serve as a guide to educate your children and connect them with the sights, sounds and scents of the nature you grew up with. Justin Gaull, WV Division of Tourism
