Welcome! If you are looking for information regarding WV ATV RIDING, you have come to the right place! If you don't see what you are looking for, join us on Facebook and ask your questions. We are here to help.
Our intent is to share information with riders planning to come to this area in hopes they will arrive more prepared than we were on that first trip. Knowing what you should have with you, where to go, where not to go, things like that.
During our first trips here, we were told that only two rules applied. Don't open any gates or cut any fences. Obeying the rare no trespassing sign was a given. There are so many trails to ride, why try to go into places that you will not be welcome?
The 'User Defined Trails' are great and a MUST RIDE. The trick here is to ride first with someone already familiar with the trails or carry a GPS you know how to use.
We do spend most of our time on these trails, and they are used to get from one HFM system to the other. Your adventure will only be limited by your imagination.
The infamous Stair Steps are located right where the pavement ends by THE guardrail. You will drive right by on your way to Mountain Top Cabins.
Severely eroded and basically impassable, the Steps continue to be a major landmark and popular spot to gather. "let's meet at the stair steps" has been said more times than a person could count!!
As you explore this area, you will eventually find train trestles and tunnels. AWESOME stuff to see for sure. Probably a must see, but view from a distance.
You can access Hatfield McCoy's Indian Ridge, Pocahontas, and Pinnacle Creek systems by trail. Yes there is a fee to pay and rules to follow, but you get something the local trails do not offer. A MAP and marked trails. Maps really help!

WV ATV laws allow you to go just about anywhere. This is not an ATV park. It's just a huge ATV friendly area. This site mainly covers the local trails around Ashland & Crumpler WV, Wyoming, Mercer and McDowell Counties, and Hatfield's 3 southern systems Indian Ridge, Pinnacle Creek, and Pocahontas, which are easily accessible via ATV / UTV.
You park your hauler and unload just once. Ride 24 / 7 / 365 with the exception of leap year, which adds another day to the schedule. This area is huge. Countless miles of state roads, mostly gravel, criss cross and interconnect the immeasurable miles of User Developed Trials.
