Our Hatfield & McCoy trip

We just came back from our trip from the Hatfield & McCoy trails in southern WV. This was our 1st trip but I know it will not be our last. We had a great time and look forward to returning the next chance we get. Now, on to a few details about the trip. We decided to stay at the Buffalo Trails cabins located in Bluefield , WV. We rented one of their tree house units for our stay. Our unit was an efficiency unit with a full kitchen, bath and a queen bunk bed set up. It also had AC/Heat and a great front porch. There was a fire ring(firewood included) and picnic table. The cabin was great fit for my wife and I. We were able to buy our permits and get trail maps right on site. The property also had a really nice restaurant on site(open Thurs,Fri & Sat). We had dinner there one the nights and the food was great.

We started our 1st day on the Pocahontas Trail system. It had rained a couple days off & on before our arrival which put the trails in perfect condition. All the trails were very well maintained and very clearly marked. We kind of just leisurely rode, getting a feel for the place and deciding which trails we liked the best. It was a great day of riding, exploring new trails and meeting some nice people.


Day 2 saw us go back to the Pocahontas trail. We now had a good lay of the land and wanted to hit some of those trails hard. Being it was on Sunday, the traffic was at a minimum. I think we saw maybe 10 or 12 other riders all day. We got a ton of riding in and had a ball. We saw tons of wildlife on day 2( deer, turkeys, ruffed grouse & tons of squirrels) we even found some fresh bear tracks, but we never got a glimpse of Mr.Bruin.


Day 3 we decided to make the ride up to the Indian Ridge Trail system. We hit a couple trails on Pocahontas on our way to Indian Ridge. It was a nice long ride.


We stopped at Ashland Resort along the way to take a look at their facility. We liked the layout and we will be putting it on our list of places to stay. We then rode on what I would call the Indian Ridge North portion of the trail. The scenery was outstanding. The one trail winds you up the mountain giving you some beautiful views.


The last part of the ride found us in some really fun, muddy type trails. We took full advantage and had a blast.



A little mud selfie never hurt anybody!


All in all it was a great trip. We put on over 167 miles in the 3 days we were there. The people were very friendly and they welcome riders with open arms. We can't wait to go back!

I have never ridden an organized trail system but that place looks like a good bucket list place to hit.
