  • The overall experience was good. The trail pass cost is not included with the rental. Also helmets gloves goggles and bandanas are extra as well. Plus a $1000. Refundable deposit for razor. Lots of fu...  more »
  • If you have a real dirt bike (Ktm, etc) the Hatfield McCoy trails is the best place to test it and your skills. Nothing else on the east coast compares- I have spent years checking out the competition...  more »
  • It was worth following the trail but you need to pay attention to the signs. It's easy to go by some of them. This review is 5 stars because of the stop at where the McCoy house was burnt down. Neil i...  more »

  • Beautiful scenery, well maintained trails for all skill levels. Trails clearly marked, reasonably priced. My new favorite adventure spot close to home.
  • We traveled all the way from Toronto, Canada to ride the Bearwallow Trail. You need to get a permit which is good for the season. You can it get it at this specific trail from 9 am - 2 pm. After that you have to go to the welcome center I believe.I'm going to answer the questions, that you can't find answers to. Jeeps are only allowed on the Bearwallow system, Greens and Blues trails only ,to my knowledge. Green is the easiest and blue is more difficult. You need a helmet to ride even in a jeep. It took us 3 hours to complete a circuit of trails, so you will not get bored. This is a rare trail system that is open 7 days a week and open during "daylight hours", you can ride alone as well, most other trails make let you either only let you ride on weekends, or with a minimum of 2 vehicles. As for directions, your map will show WV 17 and WV 10 forking off and you are suppose to follow the WV 17. The WV 10 has a new extension which is not updated on any maps including google, the new extension is only 3 months old. So their isn't a real fork, there is a left you have to make, your map will show a fork but it is a left turn. This was an amazing experience, worth the 9 hours drive from Toronto.
  • Love the HMT trails..... however the trails are booming in popularity..... great for WV, bad for users! HMT needs to step up their efforts now to police their system with people with authority to enforce rules and laws. Speeding and drinking becoming a big problem and the accidents and wrecks are proof. Hope they can figure it out, those trails are no joke, even the green trails have little to room for error. We cancelled our plans to attend Trailfest this year as it has gotten out of control up there.
  • Spent a weekend at the Ashland resort and had an awesome time, great trails and people. The only problems we experienced was dirt on the cabin floors when we arrived and the trails have traffic going two ways which wasn't a problem until we someone speeding down a narrow trail in a side by side, taking up the whole path. Great place, great trails and the game warden monitoring the trails was very helpful, will be coming back. Only recommendation would be stock up on anything you need because the grocery stores are few and far between.
  • We were on the rock house section, staying at twin hollows campground and cabins. First the bad part; these trails will ruin your view of your local trails (at least if you come from Pennsylvania or Ohio anyways). They are well groomed and well marked. The trails in my humble opinion are just the right, the are open and easy with some challenging areas and obstacles without being too easy and boring to ride, but just because the trails are broken down into sections no longer than 7 miles, don't expect to do short loops, these are very long trails with very long ascents and descents. The scenery is breathtaking. The towns are all atv friendly, meaning you can ride your atv right to the gas station, restaurants, car washes etc. The locals are absolutely nothing but nice, the rest of the country could learn a thing or 2 about friendliness and hospitality from southern WV. I was also very impressed with the other riders on these trails, everyone we passed was very courteous and knew how to use hand signals to let oncoming riders know how many more were in their group.
