HEY ! I do not remember that from the campfire last year !

Oh wait a minute..... I do recall drinking something out of a Mason jar with large berries in it..... A few times.

I am now thinking that I was not sober at the campfire.

Never mind.... Carry on... Nothing to see here...

Hatfield McCoy Trail System



The Hatfield McCoy Trail System is generally thought to be for ATV riders.
However, many dualsport and dirt riders put their knobbies to the test here.

The system is located southwest of Charleston, WV and is operated by a
regional authority encompassing several counties.

Its name is derived from the bloody feud(s) between the Hatfield and McCoy families after the Civil War.

At the present time the trail system consists of approx. 500 miles making
it the second largest off-road vehicle trail in the world.

The trail system caters to ATV, UTV, and motorbikes (dirt and dualsport bikes).
Hikers, mountain bikers, and horse riders can also use the trails.

Six trails are maintained by the staff.
Maps are available.

Law enforcement officers patrol the trail to assure compliance with safety regulations.
Motorized users of the trail system must wear a DOT-approved helmet and
are prohibited from "doubling" (having a passenger), unless their vehicle is
designed for two people.
These rules, and a host of others, have allowed the trail system to enjoy a quality safety record.

Fees:
WV Resident permit costs $26.50.
Non-Resident permit costs $50.00.
The permits expire Dec. 31 of the year issued.
Permits can be purchased online at:
http://www.trailsheaven.com/about/hatfield-mccoy_trails_user_permits.aspx
Prices are subject to change without notice
