Trail Systems

Trail Systems

RTI’s Trails team is actively enhancing lands that provide recreational, aesthetic, alternate transportation and educational opportunities for multi-use trails.

RTI’s Trails Program is actively engaged in alternative transportation systems that enhance and improve the connectivity of bicycle, pedestrian, recreational, aesthetic, alternative transportation and educational opportunities for a full range of transportation systems users.


By employing the unique capacities developed at RTI, we take trail systems from conception to implementation and completion. Our experienced team provides the following services:

  • GIS inventory mapping
  • Layout and design
  • Construction oversight

Project Highlights

Development of a West Virginia Trails Geodatabase & Trails Inventory Mapping System
RTI completed a detailed inventory of existing trail routes and associated assets which are entered into a geodatabase. These data layers are coupled with the field data collected and applied to a Geographical Information System. This provides an accurate digital map inventory for transportation and economic development issues across the State.

Hatfield-McCoy Motorized Trail
This project provided training, issue identification and resolution proposals, technical and professional assistance in the off highway vehicle (OHV) and recreation programs and coordination with other interested parties with motorized trail issues.

Paul Ambrose Trail for Health (PATH) 
RTI, in association with the City of Huntington, has designed and initiated construction of a bicycle and pedestrian trail system. The trail incorporates regional amenities and workplaces to allow citizens an alternate means of transportation.
