Funding for the Thermal Belt Rail Trail was provided by RHI Legacy Foundation to promote health & wellness in our community. RHI Legacy Foundation is dedicated to contributing to quality and accessible health care for the community through a joint venture with Duke LifePoint. Without this partnership, the trail would not exist. Please check out ALL the good they are doing in the community...
