It's called the Wagon Wheel, Pinnacle Creek, the Stair Steps, and more. In reality it's Crumpler WV, Ashland WV, Mercer County,
McDowell County, and Wyoming County. It's hundreds and hundreds of miles of trail. You can easily access three of
Hatfield McCoy's trail systems from Crumpler.
Indian Ridge and Pocahontas are less than 4 miles
away, with Pinnacle Creek system accessable via Indian Ridge or Outlaw Trail, all by ATV. You park your hauler and unload
This area is located near Northfork / Crumpler, off of US 52 in southern West Virginia. Ride 24 / 7 / 365
with the exception of leap year, which adds an additional day to the schedule.
Ride from daylight to daylight every day all
day. There are immeasurable miles of trails that are available for anyone to come and enjoy that do allow access to parts of
the Hatfield McCoy trail system. This area offers trails for various rider ability levels from novice to expert. Countless miles
of state roads surround and cross the trail network. These main gravel roads are easily, and legally traversable for inexperienced
riders. Numerous other smaller trails connect to these gravel roads, and create a challenging ride for the more experienced
All trails are at a minimum two-way, so you should remain alert for other traffic, including large coal hauling trucks
and fast moving sport quads. Several stores on the trails allow the opportunity to replenish your supplies.
Intermediate Fun Trails. ( Yes )
Advanced, Expert Trails. ( Yes )
We have frequented several towns including Northfolk,
Keystone, Kimball, Welch, Pineville, Mullens, and Motoaka. Heck, we have been to WalMart on the ATV's! And legally at
that. Do you like to ride along the creek? Maybe just ride some wooded trails? How about a hill climb or twelve?
It's all here and more.
Come Get You Some!
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. Remember: your ride is not over until you get back. 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!!
you explore this area, you will eventually find train trestles and tunnels. AWESOME stuff to see for sure. You need to
be aware that if you are caught on railroad property, you could find yourself in BIG TIME TROUBLE as in up to 25 days in jail plus
Railroad property does include the rail beds beside the tracks. Resist the temptation that I know you will
feel to cross a trestle, go through a tunnel, or zoom along beside a train. 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!
Local Information. It's good stuff to know!
