  1. This is some exciting news for those who ride the Hatfield McCoy Trails!! The trail authority is working on a connector to connect Rockhouse to the Buffalo Mtn Trail. I copied and pasted this from a blog on the Hatfield McCoy site!! Wednesday, May 14, 2014 Devil Anse Connector...starts soon... Devil Anse Connector to start work today Hey folks, Big Jim here comin' to you from the heart of HMT Country. And boy do I have some big news for you. In about two hours work should start going full tilt on the new Devil Anse Connector that will hook up our famous and super-popular Rockhouse Trails to the Matewan area. As you know, Rockhouse is very popular -especially among our extreme riders- and it is housed in two counties - Mingo County- via Gilbert and Logan County via the town of Man. Some time back it was announced that the next phase of work for HMT would be to connect trails together starting with connecting the trails in Mingo County together then connecting the trails in Logan County together. Well, construction on that phase starts in earnest today. Awhile back I ran into somebody I know who is in the know who told me "something big is coming real soon," but would not confirm anything. So Monday evening I ran up to the town of Man where Deputy Director Johnny Fekete lives and met with him after the town council meeting where Johnny shared the good news with the town council. Fekete said work will soon be completed over the next two months on the Rockhouse trail connector that should make a lot of different people happy for several different reasons- not the least of which would be lessening ATV traffic in one residential area. I hung around a little to talk with Johnny about this. “We will start pushing on Wednesday on the Devil Anse Connector, “ Fekete said. “This is a long time proposal and when it is completed it will connect the Rochouse Trail to the town of Matewan.” Fekete said he hoped the project would be completed in a few months, barring any unforeseen delays. “This is our big project for the year.” Fekete said the idea for the Devil Anse Connector goes back a decade or so to the early days of the Hatfield-McCoy Trails. Now that most of the trails are completed the Hatfield-McCoy Regional Recreation Authority is looking at connecting them together. Currently the trails offer over 600 miles of managed trails in and around several towns in Southern West Virginia. The trails have proven to be a great success in regards to bringing in tourism dollars to the area and the HMRRA wants to continue that success in making the coalfields a popular tourism destination. “This will be a very big thing for our riders, “ Fekete said of the Devil Anse Connector. Great news for the trail riders and area businesses!
  2. Not sure if this is to far out for you but I have heard the Hatfield-McCoy Trails in VA are awesome. The Hatfield McCoy Trails are a great place to ride! I know that it is not that bad of a trip! I have made many trips between Tennessee and southern WV. If you every want to plan a trip, don't hesitate to contact us. We can tell you anything that you want to know about the trail system!
  3. 2011 Hatfield McCoy Trail Permits go on sell to the public the last part of November. If you really want to get your money's worth, plan a late November or December trip and buy the new 2011 permit. This permit will be good until December 31, 2011. Over 13 months of riding for fifty dollars--now that is what we call a good deal. Take advantage of the 2011 permits. Start planning a winter trip today! Lisa and Marty
  4. GTX70sixpack, hope your next trip to Hatfield McCoy is a little more enjoyable with no breakdowns.
  5. I am sure that you will have a great time. If you need help with your plans, just let us know.
  6. Our places are about a three minute ride off the trails. I can see the trails from our kitchen window. You can arrive, unload, leave your vehicle parked at the trailhouses, then head to the trails on your ATV. For a group of six on a weekend, the average price per night is about $150. That is minimal for a group of six. All of our places are fully furnished. They have fully equipped kitchens. We also have gas grills, picnic tables, and fire pits. The price of the riding permit is $50. It is good until December 31 at all six trails. If you have anymore questions, just let us know. We are happy to help you.
  7. 2010 is going to be a great year for the Hatfield McCoy Trails. The system just keeps getting better and better. If you need additional information on the trails, just let us know. We would be happy to help you plan a trip to wild, wonderful WV!
  8. Have you ridden the Hatfield McCoy Trails in southern WV? Great place with great trails!!
  9. A little word of advice from a local in southern WV--if you plan on attending Trailfest, make your plans immediately. You will have a difficult time finding lodging in the Gilbert area, but you might possibly find lodging in the Man area which is about 25 mintues from Man. If I can help you, let me know.
  10. Which just strengthens my previous point!
  11. I know with the economy the way that it is that some people are having to cut back. But I still feel that $50.00 for a year is a great price!
  12. The Hatfield McCoy Trails did offer a 3-7 day pass. It costs $37.00. They changed their permits last year. Only instate and out of state yearly passes. The yearly passes cost $13.00 more than the old "weekend passes". In my opinion, it is a bargain. The yearly passes used to be $100.00. They lowered the price to $75.00 plus tax. Then they lowered it again last year to $50.00. With over 500 miles of trails and six trail systems, fifty dollars is a bargain.
  13. rainman, you are welcome! If you need additional info, just let me know.
