County gets $100,000 grant to build ‘trailhead’ in city

Letcher County has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the federal government to build a “trailhead” leading from Whitesburg to Pine Mountain.

The Letcher Fiscal Court announced during a special meeting last week that the money will come from the Federal Highway Administration’s Recre- ational Trails Program. The grant will be used to develop a trailhead to be located near the tennis courts at Whitesburg and connect with an already extensive system of trails leading to Pine Mountain. Trailheads usually feature parking areas, information centers, and rest rooms.
