Pocahontas OHV Trail

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Spearhead Trails, OP Trail, Original Pocahontas OHV Trail System

Last Known StatusOpen

The Pocahontas Trail (not to be confused with the Pocahontas Trail System in West Virginia) is part of five new trail systems in Virginia that cater to ATVs and UTVs. This trail system offers miles of long loops to explore, plus 10 miles of pure single track for dirt bikes.

All trails are marked and rated and offer a good mix of rugged to easy terrain, mud puddles and light to moderate elevation changes. There are many scenic viewpoints throughout this trail system that offer some spectacular views of rolling wooded hills and mountains.

Camping with direct access can be found at Trailhead ATV Resort, which also features cabin and cottage rentals, a coin operated laundromat and camp store stocked with cold drinks, ice, groceries, firewood, snacks, apparel and trail permits.

Free day use parking with restooms and gazebos can be found near the resort at Boissevain Park. A smaller parking area can be found a few miles east near the town of Pocahontas.

A permit is required to ride this trail system which can be picked up at Trailhead ATV Resort, online or at nearby vendors.
