WV Hatfield McCoy Ride Pics

Recommended Posts

Well here are some pics from my 3 day WV trail ride - 150 miles of singletrack, rocks, and hill climbs :lol::cry:

had a great time. Not many action shots - rode most the time a fast pace to cover all trails at each area we went to each day. I met up with 4 other riders that I met through an e-mail distribution list of local riders - I met the person that gave me and put me on the list from here at TT.

If you are on the east coast, and have not been to the Hatfield McCoy trails - you need to go!!!!!!!

I drove 6 1/2 hours there by myself to meet the guys there - worth every mile of the trip :cry::lol:

If you look in the center of this shot you see a little clearing...thats where the end of one of the single tracks were. Loose coal hill climp up to where I took the shot - 2 foot deep X 2 foot wide rut of loose coal about 1/4 mile uphill climb

This was the top of the coal hill where the single track brought us....nice little coal hills to play on

Awesome place to ride! Where is it?

Its in Logan West Virginia. Near the Kentucky border

Great place to ride - worth the drive there. There are 5 different trail heads around there that you can ride - each one has about 80-100 miles of great trails, and a few singletracks. Here is the website - http://www.trailsheaven.com/
