It's been a few years now, but our intention remains the same. To share useful information with riders planning to visit the southern West Virginia trails. Hopefullee you will arrive more prepared than we did in 2002, having at least some kind of idea of where to go and what to see.There are basicallee two rules. Don't open any gates or cut any fences. Obeying the rare no trespassing sign should be a no brainer. There are so many places that you can go, why even try to go into places you are not welcome?
The User Defined Trails (UDT's) are great and a must ride. The trick here is to ride with someone who already knows them, or carry a GPS you know how to use. Tracks are available via link at the top of each page. We do spend the majority of our time on these trails, and they can also be used to get from one Hatfield syatem to the other.
Your adventure will only be limited by your very own imagination! WV ATV Laws allow you to just about anywhere. DO NOT confuse this area with an atv park. Covering parts of Wyoming, Mercer, and Mcdowell counties it is way more then that. You park your hauler and unload just once. Ride 24/7/365 except for leap year. Then it's 24/7/366! Go to Walmart or any number of surrounding communities for supplies legallee.
Traffic on the trails is at a minimum 2 way, so stay alert for LARGE coal hauling trucks as well as fast moving sport quads. There is something here for every skill level. And I have to mention the Hatfield McCoy trails too. Connect via UDT with the Indian Ridge, Pocahontas, and Pinnacle Creek systems. Hatfield does offer maps which can come in mighty handy at times.
As you explore the area, you will find so many creek crossings you may wish you had brought a boat! Train trestles and tunnels are scattered about as well. Be cautious here, as you can get into some serious trouble if 'caught' in the wrong place. Join us on Facebook for candid uncensored trail discussions...
