We’ve made a pit stop in the mountain state of West Virginia as we voyage across the US looking at ATV and UTV trails. It’s one of the most scenic states in the nation, and its most popular attractions are all centered around its rolling mountains, hills, and valleys.
West Virginia’s trails are bounded by almost 160 years of history. It dates back to 1865, when a land dispute started between the Hatfield and McCoy families. The controversy between the two families was one of its time. The Hatfields took the victory, but both families paid a great price.
Today, what we’ve identified as the top UTV and ATV trails in West Virginia was once the land the Hatfields and McCoy’s feuded over.
In 2000, trails were adopted under sole ownership and became the Hatfield-McCoy Trail System. Now 10 trails fall under that same operating system.
So let’s take a look at what these families were fighting for.
NOTE: Park details and prices reflect what was current as of May 2022.
West Virginia has thousands of miles of trails and lots of versatile terrains. There’s bound to be a trail that you’ll like. As you can see, the Hatfield-McCoy Trail System covers a lot of ground in West Virginia. We know there are other hidden gems out there.
