Trail Overview

This Trail has everything one wants in an awesome trail with the exception of a water crossing. This trail is best traveled West to East for a few reasons. First; food and drink are on the east side. Second; the difficult/exciting stuff is on the west side, Best to get through it first. Third; most traffic is headed West to East. Parts of this trail share trail with Hatfield McCoy. You do not need a trail pass for these parts. You will pass no entry signs that are designed to keep you on Hatfield McCoy trails. Please disregard them. Many parts are along a ridge with beautiful views. Some parts are along creeks. The first third of this trail has some awesome rock crawls that are not for a beginner. Enjoy and have fun.

Got to be the hardest trail I’ve done to date. Deep ruts, thick mud, tight openings and deep water crossings. Very technical. Spoke to some people that said they rode it last year and it was fine, and now it’s borderline impassable. Took us the whole day. Beware!
