The Regional Commission and local Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) recently completed the New River Valley Trail Guide, a resource showcasing outdoor recreation assets across the region. This project was part of a Virginia Tourism Corporation Marketing Leverage Program (MLP) grant award that the Commission and DMOs submitted jointly. The DMOs provided content and images while the Commission developed the design and layout of the guide. This is the second regional trail guide the Commission and DMOs have completed, with the first also being part of an MLP grant award back in 2014.
