HRC Program Director of Research and Evaluation, Dr. Christiaan Abildso, traveled to the International Trails Symposium in Dayton, Ohio this month to present research on the business impact of trail development in Morgantown, WV. This research could be used to further develop Morgantown rails and trails in similiar communities around the U.S. and the Industrial Heartlands Trails Coalition's 1,400 mile network, which spans parts of western Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia, eastern Ohio and the southwestern corner of New York.
