Clarksburg, W.Va. (AP) -- Harrison County officials have closed a hiking and biking trail after lead and other contaminants were discovered.
The northern Harrison County bike and hike trail runs 7 miles between north view and spelter.
Its entrance is located on a former glass plant site.
Don Martin with the state Department of Environmental Protection says contaminants found on the trail include lead and arsenic.
Contamination levels haven't been determined.
Harrison County planning commission director Terry Schulte said last week that the trail would be closed indefinitely.
A Maryland engineering firm that designed the trail will conduct further tests for the county.
