PITTSBORO — An abandoned rail line in Calhoun and Yalobusha counties may become the home for a recreational trail.
WTVA-TV reports Calhoun County supervisors approved a resolution Monday to create the Mississippi and Skuna Valley Rails to Trails Recreational District.
The county must sign a pact with Yalobusha County to make the project a reality.
Patriot Rail owns the abandoned line and has notified authorities the company will scrap the nearly 22-mile long railroad.
The company would turn over the property to the county.
The trail would be similar to the Tanglefoot Trail currently under construction from New Albany to Houston.
