Hatfield McCoy Trails

Last Known StatusOpen

Of the seven Hatfield McCoy Trail Systems, this area offers the largest amount of challenging single track and ATV trails. There are about 95 miles of trails here to explore which wind in and out of the deep forest and you'll see signs to let you know it is legal to ride on.

The trails offer access nearby towns with gas, food and lodging. This is part of what is many consider to be the best trail system in America, and the area draws visitors from all over the country.
