Preston Rail Trail

Organization: Friends of the Cheat

Year: 2006

Amount: 7500

Status: Project complete

Type: Bike path/trail

Address: Preston Rail Trail, Kingwood, WV

The Friends of the Cheat received a $7,500 grant to help develop an abandoned rail corridor into the multi-use Preston Rail Trail. Our funding helped leverage an $80,000 West Virginia Trail Grant as well as other funding for the trail. The 10-mile bike/ped path will link the town of Kingwood with neighboring Tunnelton, providing a safe route for commuters, families, and new cyclists.
