The October, 2008 National Geographic features an article on the Ozark Highlands Trail in Arkansas. The article features a map of the National Trails System, including the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail, a series of trails along the Potomac River basin, including the Great Allegheny Passage trail running through Allegany County and on to Pittsburgh. Although written about the Ozark Highlands Trail, a quote from the article applies equally to our corner of the Appalachians:

 “Thickly forested with red oak and black gum, these hillsides have witnessed much history, having been roamed by Indians, crisscrossed by Spanish and French explorers, and skirmished over by Union and Confederate armies in the Civil War.”
