Off-roaders Find Home in New Hatfield-Mcoy Trails

Dollar Photo Club

Having recently lost access to about 55 miles of some of the toughest off-roading trails in the state, 4x4 drivers have found new paths to challenge themselves on in a different part of the Hatfield-McCoy Trail System.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that the challenging Ivy Branch Trail in Lincoln County was closed last year after the land was sold to a new owner.

Since the closure, more than 100 volunteers from state off-roading clubs have been working with Hatfield-McCoy officials for the past five months to identify, map and test drive 21 miles of new trails that were recently added to the Hatfield-McCoy Trails' Bear Wallow trail network near Logan.

The new trails include 11 miles of double black-diamond terrain through creek beds and boulder fields.
