The Great Eastern Trail


“The Great Eastern Trail is a project of the Great Eastern Trail Association, working with the American Hiking Society and local trail partners, to create America’s newest long distance trail for hikers from Alabama to New York!

“The Great Eastern Trail will provide a 2000 mile hiking experience in the western Appalachian Mountains.  It will connect pre-existing trails (like the Mary Ingles, Allegheny, Tuscarora, and Appalachian Trails in WV) and existing outdoor recreation areas from Alabama to New York.  This mighty trail will cross eight counties in West Virginia: Mingo, Wyoming, Mercer, Raleigh, Summers, Monroe, Greenbrier, & Pocahontas.”
