I ran across this old post on Spearhead Trails Facebook page. It may be an old post, but maybe members here would comment or otherwise communicate to indicate there is (if there is; and I can't imagine there is not) wide support for such a thing and a much broader community that would use such a range than their interest group includes. There is a lot of funding out there right now to develop tourism as an alternative to coal mining. This would also work to reclaim an orphan coal mine somewhere as a range. Maybe you guys could see your way clear to fan these flames a little. There is still a lot of local support, but the prospect of drawing folks in from outside the area would be a powerful incentive.

Also, if any of you are into four-wheeling or "mudding", check out the local trails. They look pretty awesome to me. ... SEARCH_BOX
