Active Southern West Virginia promotes outside activity with Trail Tuesdays

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – Active Southern West Virginia is starting Trail Tuesdays, where they encourage the community to take advantage of local hiking spots.

Each Tuesday they will highlight specific trails and bring in experts to give advice for hikers on their social media.

Executive Director of Active Southern West Virginia Melanie Seiler says that because they can’t do group hikes for the time being, they’d encourage the community to head out themselves. 

“We thought this would be a good time to plan and do research on trails that they could get out on. Because we’re not necessarily able to do large group programs and large group hikes right now; we could give people the tools they need to go out with their family on trails,” Seiler said.

New trails will be featured each Tuesday throughout June on the Active Southern West Virginia Facebook page.
