Major Changes to WV ATV Trails 2013
BobT, Sept 7, 2013
When installing please read color coding scheme

• Now includes 356 waypoints including 35 Lodging waypoints, 23 eating establishments, 32 gas stations, and 83 directional sign post.
• Consist of 715 individual tracks and over 2,000 miles of trails
• Tracks and intersection accuracy was improved for all trails using various satellite imagery and Google Earth.
• Added East Lynn Trails, color coded and named. Color coding is my opinion.
• Added Bergoo Trails, color coding is subjective since these trails I did not track.
• Added Hatfield McCoy Ivy Branch Trails, numbered and color coded.
• Updated/tweaked all Hatfield McCoy Trail Systems.
• Changed background color to pure white for better printing using Basecamp and plotters.

Outlaw Trails
• Several trails added East of Herndon.
• Several small tweaks made to various trails.
• Added special color coded trail “HMIR-27 to Stair Steps”.
• Added special color coding for “9-mile Creek By-Pass” going to Welch.
• Includes 7 special color coded trails between popular destinations.

Hatfield McCoy
• Most trails were ridden in Spring and Summer of 2013 and updated to current status.
• HMPO – added alternated Trail Entrance from Bramwell. (much easier)
• HMIB – ridden and tracked in March and August with several GPSr’s.
• HMIR - updated trail 19, connector to Stair Steps has special color coding.
• HMPC - Trail 22 added.
• HMBW - new Logan connector added, left recently removed trail 10 on map.
• HMLCR - updated to latest map added back trails 57, 64, 65, 14.

Burning Rock – A very nice trail system, takes 2 days to ride. Highly recommend.
• Ridden in June and July, under new management and trails are being added/deleted/changed constantly. Several changes between June and July.
• Added trails 99, 30, 59, 48.
• New configuration of trail 2 to trail head from other side of Hwy-16.
• Reflects new trail 67 configuration.

East Lynn – ridden and tracked in spring and summer of 2013. Some trails are blocked due to tornado damage. Shows parking areas and two gas stations. Color coding is fairly accurate.

Bergoo – this is one system that I have not ridden. Got tracks from someone else so color coding is very subjective.

Thanks Bob

Do you know if the paper maps you can print out from the website reflect the changes you are talking about? I will download load maps for sure. I like to use both when we are riding there.

Thanks Jim

BF, yes I believe the trail maps show all the changes. I use them as a reference for numbering and color coding. I know they still show IR 95,96, 97 that have not existed for several years. HM trails are very well marked and the maps are accurate. What my map has that they do not is the "Outlaw" Trails, and waypoints.

These are a must have if you want to ride the Hatfield mccoy and wagon wheel outlaw trails. Entirely accurate and pretty darn complete.

Thanks Bob

BP, the only way to use them on an Android device is with the App "OruxMaps". To my knowledge it is the only App that can display a Garming map image. The link below will take you to a download of a document that explains how to install map images on a Droid device. The document has links to the App and to my map images that you will copy to your device. There are several people on the RZR forum using this App on Nexus Tablets.

I believe you will lose the color coding on your Droid. I have it on my Razr Max and it works fine. The map will be an offline map so no need for cell service.
