No Matter Your Passion, West Virginia Has A Trail for You

West Virginia’s mountainous landscape is bisected by hundreds of miles of trails – you can hike, bike, and explore as long as your energy lasts. Grandview State Park in Beckley has 6 miles of trails leading to overlooks of the New River and rock formations. The Greenbrier River Trail in Marlinton is a hiking, biking, and horse riding trail on a 78-mile former railroad bed – it’s the longest of its kind in the state and offers breathtaking views as well as 35 bridges and two tunnels.

In Lansing, the Endless Wall Trail is in the New River Gorge and offers nonstop views of the river 1,000 vertical feet below. For a fantastic view, make the trek to Spruce Knob, the state’s highest point – at the top you can experience a rare rocky sub-alpine landscape. One of the nation’s most hallowed hiking trails is the Appalachian Trail – you’ll find 24 miles of it in West Virginia.

Not far away is a different kind of trail – the Armory Canal Trail. Those who prefer to see trails from behind a dashboard will want to head to the Hatfield-McCoy trail complex near Lyburn, which has routes for dirt bikes and utility vehicles.

Hatfield-McCoy Trails

The Hatfield-McCoy Trails encompass over 500 miles of trails in southern West Virginia. These mountainous trails near Chapmanville are some of the world's largest trail systems for off-road vehicles.

The trails have been featured in several ATV magazines, as well as on the Outdoor Channel.

The trails offer ATV riders excellent opportunities to master their skills and have a blast doing it. The surrounding towns welcome ATV riders and are great places to take a break and enjoy a meal.
