Last Known StatusOpen

One of the original Hatfield McCoy Trail Systems, Bearwallow offers about 100 miles of equal amounts of novice, amateur and expert level trails with some decent single track.

The main staging area has two acres of parking, restrooms and a visitor center that sells permits and merchandise. Recently a trail has been added to connect to the nearby Town of Chapmanville (Trail 17) which has lodging, fuel and restaurants.

Overnight parking is not permitted but camping with electric and water hookups can be found a few miles away at Chief Logan State Park.
