Fire up your ATV next Tuesday, for a holiday-inspired free day on the Hatfield-McCoy Trails.

On West Virginia Day, June 20, state residents can ride free on the Hatfield-McCoy Trail system. The only other option, an annual permit, would usually cost $26.50.  

Trail passes will be available to residents who present a valid West Virginia driver’s license or state-issued ID at Hatfield-McCoy trailhead locations, the Welcome Center and the Country Roads Visitors Center.

West Virginia Day passes are not available at local retailers and are only valid on June 20, 2023.

All Hatfield-McCoy Trails regulations will apply to all riders and note that West Virginia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) police officers will be out on the trails checking for permits.
