Hello everyone,I am from WV and new to this site.It looks pretty good so far.I own a 06 Predator 500 TLD,07 Sportsman 500 EFI and an 09 Sportsman 550 XP.I hope the XP is as good as the hype.
hey Slider, I think they are putting 2 HM trails systems in this fall from what I am hearing. One in Bramwell and the other in Matoaka. You can get to the Wagon Wheel trails from Trail 23 on the Pinnacle Creek trail system, but there is no way in the world I could ever explain how to get there on the Internet. You need to hook up with someone who has been on em. The trails are ok I guess. They are very wide, but extremely rocky in some places. I recommend a utilty atv more than a sport quad on those trails. There are no rules and there are a bunch of idiot drunk rednecks that ride em, so you have to watch out for the other person rather than yourself when riding. My wife prefers riding the Hatfield more than the Wagon wheel, which i don't blame her in a way. As far as I'm concerned I wish HM would take over the whole thing. A lot of the people who ride the wagon don't ride the HM trails because they don't want to pay $50.00 for a permit, but yet they can afford to pay $6000 to $8000 for an atv and $100 for a weekends worth of beer and liquor. Thats the mentality of some of the people up there, but for the most part most of the people are very nice.I've been to Pinnacle Ck. 2 times this year.The first time I went we tried to find Wagon Wheel but no one that we talked to knew the way and we ended up with about 20 people looking for it,but they gave up,so we just rode up to Bud Mtn and a couple of kids told us how to get there.There are 2 or 3 different ways to get to WW from Pinnacle.Have you heard about the new trail they are working on over towards Bramwell,WV in Mercer county?
Oh I love a cold beer on a hot summer day, but not a case strapped to my rear rack.:shot::lmao: I've been there a couple of times.There is at least 2 ways maybe 3 to get there.When I get to the extreme trails,I go straight up the creek,where 23 goes up the hill towards the blacktop,instead of turning right when I ride the Pred.not as many deep creeks.I have came back to Pinnacle the way you are talking about with some guys and they took a shortcut off of 23 to the blacktop and past a coal mine.It didnt take very long to get back going that way.I'm not sure if I could find that way again.You are right about the drinking,there is plenty of it.We seen a drunk guy at the bottom of Bud mtn.go in a deep hole and he flew over the handle bars and right on his face in the mud :beer: I dont have anything against drinking a few beers during the day,but dont drink so much that it clouds your judgement of the trails.That is dangerous!!! and stupid!!! I heard H&M is trying to get another trail going over towards Wayne county also,but they are having land owner issues or something like that.It would be nice if they would get some of them connected.I think the trail you are talking about in Matoaka is the same as Bramwell.From what I hear,it is suppose to connect with Indian Ridge.That would be pretty good.
