Indian Ridge ATV Trails

Monday, December 9, 2019

Other Names

Windmill Gap Branch, Ashland, Greenbrier Hollow, Hatfield McCoy, McDowell County

Last Known StatusOpen

One of the newest additions to the Hatfield McCoy Trail System, this area has about 63 miles of trails. Unlike the other trail systems, permits are not available for purchase at the trailhead but must be obtained prior to arrival. This trail system has some moderately challenging trails but nothing too difficult.

Camping is not permitted at the staging area but nearby Ashland Resort offers direct trail access plus sells Hatfield-McCoy trail permits. The resort also has plenty of cabins, cottages, lodges, RV and tent sites plus a general store that carries basic groceries and some ATV supplies.
