It has finally happened. The Rockhouse Trail has been linked to the Buffalo Mountain Trail!! Although the grand opening is not scheduled until Memorial Day, the Devil Anse Trail System opened to the public on Wednesday April 27.
Points of interest along the Devil Anse include the Devil Anse Tunnel, The Devil Anse Cemetery, Ellison Hatfield Cemetery, and an Overlook. The Devil Anse Tunnel is a unique feature of the new trail system is a tunnel that has been incorporated into the trail stating, The system itself has a tunnel underneath the King Coal Highway which is really unusual.
The grand opening for the Devil Anse Trail System has been scheduled for Memorial Day, May 30. But it is open now. They did the final punch through on Wednesday and they opened it instantly. On Memorial Day they are going to have a grand opening and ribbon cutting.
The Devil Anse Trail is the third trail system that has opened in Mingo County. This has been more than ten years in the making. It is complicated. It is a pretty cool thing. Now, Mingo County has three trail systems.
Don't forget that Browning Fork Trailhouse is located in a hotspot! We are the closest lodging to the area where the Rockhouse Trail meets the Devil Anse Trail. Keep us in mind for your lodging!
