Many riders do not realize that the Hatfield McCoy Trail Systems are open all year long, 365 Days! 
 The trails are open each day from Sunrise to Sunset. Each season offers a completely unique experience as the environment around you changes drastically in the Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. 

While it can sometimes be tricky to catch, riding in the snow on the Hatfield McCoy Trails is an incredible experience. 


Return riders often come 2 seasons a year to experience two different riding environments. 
(Typically Spring/Fall and Winter/Summer)


Need A Guide?

Coal Country is home to several local guides and agencies who offer assistance while you're here on your Hatfield McCoy Trail Adventure! 








Need A Ride?

If you don't own an off-road vehicle or would prefer to rent one once you arrive at the trails (rather than tow your's into town) we have several rental agencies in the local area:





Need A Tow?

Many riders ask us the question, "What happens if we have a break down or get stuck somewhere on the trails?" 

The Tug Valley Area is home to two companies that can assist with trail recoveries. 

Always Call 911 if someone is injured or requires immediate medical assistance. However, if everyone is OK, you can call OR text us: 304-601-0374 and we'll coordinate a recovery operation for your machine on the Buffalo Mountain OR Devil Anse Trail Systems. 

Information that is critical for recovery operations include:
-Location of recovery (GPS Coordinates Preferred)
-Type of Machine, Number of Occupants 
-Damage Report (Can the machine be driven out once recovered?)


Info on the Kentucky Trails:

The counties of Pike & Martin, KY (which border Mingo County, WV) are in the process of developing trail systems in their respective areas. At this time (early 2021), no formal systems have been announced or mapped. However, many locals enjoy the incredible riding both areas have to offer. A perfect weekend of riding in two states can easily be achieved by "basing" your trip out of Williamson. Please reach out to our office as we can connect you with folks who have more information and maps.
