Trail system updating maps and signage
Southern West Virginia’s Hatfield-McCoy trail system is having a facelift.
A massive update of trail maps and signage is being made to help riders find attractions they may be interested in, whether it’s trails with scenic overlooks or trails with rock ledges you’d need a winch to climb.
Changes have been completed on the Browning Fork Trail System, with the remaining six systems expected to be finished in about one month.
“Our trails have many attractions, from scenic overlooks to abandoned mining operations that really show off the history and natural beauty of area,” says Hatfield-McCoy deputy director John Fekete. “We really wanted to give our riders destinations to ride to while they’re out on the trails. The division between our difficult trails and extreme trails was done for the same reason, so that our experienced riders looking for a challenge know which spots are going to give them what their looking for.”
Included in the improvements to the maps and signage are markings designating UTV approved trails, points of interest for riders to find, and the new designation between ‘Most Difficult’ (black) trails and ‘Extreme Difficult’ (black/red) trails and the division of single track trails into ‘More Difficult’ (orange square) and ‘Most Difficult’ (orange diamond) categories.
