Burke River Trail Association’s main focus is getting trail on the ground to provide economic development opportunities in eastern Burke County. With supporting economic drivers as a goal – we follow, get involved and promote all opportunities. We are making sure any town involved with the Salisbury to Asheville passenger rail service is staying up to date!!
Passenger Train coming through Burke County is Huge. We are working together to make sure there is at least one stop in the county so we can grow to more stops. The main route is Salisbury to Asheville which included Drexel, Valdese, Connelly Springs, Hildebran, Long View, Glen Alpine and Morganton.
