ON SEPT. 7, 2011, the hard work of the SummitCorps volunteers paid off: The trail opened during a ribbon-cutting ceremony that drew cyclists from the area, not to mention members of the National Park Service and the Order of the Arrow.
The Arrowhead Hike and Bike Trail, a 12.8-mile pathway located just north of the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, is now open to cyclists and hikers. Its close proximity to the Summit makes it a popular attraction for visiting Scouts.
