The Appalachian Regional Commission contracted with the We Make Things Happen Corporation (WMTH), in partnership with the firms of Barge, Waggoner, Sumner & Cannon (BWSC) and Economic Research Associates (ERA) to provide technical assistance to selected Appalachian counties in West Virginia for the development of marketable "trails" and "corridors". The goal is to strengthen the skills and build the capacity of leaders and organizations in distressed counties to develop and utilize their assets in a way that encourages authentic travel.

The West Virginia Initiative consists of eight counties made up of Braxton, Clay, Fayette, Lincoln, Logan, McDowell, Mingo and Wyoming.

On the following pages is an inventory of offerings each of the counties have compiled. This is a "work in progress".
