The Hatfield McCoy Trail System was sanctioned by the West Virginia Legislature to generate economic development by utilizing tourism in nine of the southern West Virginia counties.
The Trail System covers hundreds of miles of off-road trails. The trail systems are open 365 days a year to ATVs, dirt bikes, and utility vehicles (UTVs). Many of the trail systems also offer community connecting trails that allow visitors to access “ATV-friendly towns” to experience the charm of southern West Virginia.
The Hatfield~McCoy trail systems are Rockhouse, Buffalo Mountain, Bearwallow, Indian Ridge, Pocahontas, and Pinnacle Creek. With whatever trail system you choose, Hatfield~McCoy Trail visitors can expect to find a wide variety of trails ranging from easiest to very difficult. However, these are not your typical “flatlander” trails, and will be a challenge for a first-time rider. For this reason, visitors can opt for a list of ATV guided tour and rental providers.
The goal of the Hatfield McCoy Trails project is to develop the very best trail system with an emphasis on safety. Project estimates have concluded that once the trails are finished, there may be as much as 2,000 total miles of trails to ride on.
