Trail lodging in Mercer County can't meet demand

BRAMWELL, W.Va. (AP) - Lodging for the Hatfield-McCoy Trail system in Mercer County can't keep up with demand.

Hatfield-McCoy Trail Authority executive director Jeff Lusk says the problem is due to the trail system's rapid growth.

Lusk tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph ( ) that 75 to 100 beds have been added in Mercer County for visitors using the trail system. But the demand is more than twice that amount.

Lusk says a new motel or hotel would go a long way toward meeting the demand.
