Website News LogoFriends,

I just wanted to update you on the status of the Hatfield McCoy Trails. I have been in close contact with the State Tourism Office and State Tourism Commissioner Chelsea Ruby. The state continues to trend in the right direction and we are hopeful that in the very near future we can reopen our trails. Governor Justice has done an excellent job in managing this COVID-19 Crisis and West Virginia is leading the country in keeping its residents safe. Today at his news briefing, the Governor reiterated his feelings that we must begin to safely reopen our state. I feel that we will be receiving formal guidance in the upcoming weeks on how and when we might reopen the Hatfield McCoy Trails. Until then I ask that we honor the current Executive Order that the Hatfield McCoy Trails are officially closed.

Take care and be safe.

Jeffrey T. Lusk, Executive Director

April 14, 2020

Website News LogoWe hope that everyone is remaining safe and healthy at this time.

All Hatfield-McCoy Trail Systems and trailhead facilities will remain temporarily closed until further notice. We will post updates as we receive any new information from our state officials regarding the status of our trails and facilities. We would advise riders not to make any reservations or plans to visit the trail system until such time as the official closure order has been lifted. The state of West Virginia is under a stay-at-home order, restricting travel of local residents and the opening of non-essential businesses until April 30, 2020. This order can be extended past April 30, 2020 by order of the Governor, if necessary, to protect residents from the COVID-19 virus. We appreciate your patience during this time and hope to see you back on the trails soon!

Until then, stay safe and take care.

Jeffrey Lusk, Executive Director

Although we appreciate the tremendous number of visitors who have flocked to the trail in recent days, it is important for all Americans to minimize travel and remain close to home during this difficult time.
