ATV News

West Virginia's Bluefield Daily Telegraph has reported that Raleigh County, located in the southern part of the state, has approved plans for a new trail system.

Not part of the state's Hatfield-McCoy Trails System, Burning Rock Off-Road Park, will encompass 8,000 acres and 80 miles of trails.

The county has been working to create a local ATV trail system since 2005, and the new park will be located near Tams Mountain.

“We feel this new ATV trail system will be the largest tourism attraction in Raleigh County in the years to come,” Commission President Pat Reed said.

“We wanted to look at a public/private contract with a local land owner,” Reed said. “We were very fortunate to have a large land owner in Beaver Coal Co. Ltd. come into the project with us.”

Reed added the commission hopes the new ATV trial system will be up and running this July.

Wagon Wheel is on the Wyoming and Mcdowell County lines PB.

Raleigh County is north about 40 miles.
Largest city is Beckley for a reference point.

Wonder why they didn't get on the H/M trail system. Question I'll be there in July and it might be somewhere to check out. Smile

State is taking an approach to the H-M Trails that the locals and landowners don't agree with
Trying to strong hold the In-State folks on to promoting the trail system without their input meaning anything when it comes to future projects

Local news in Bluefield said it was the mining company that presented the arrangement to open this park in protest of the H-M Trails

They are building a massive 4 lane from Beckley down to Williamson now to push tourism in the southern counties where poverty reins king after all the coal mines shut down in recent years.
About 10 miles is complete
Will run right close to Pineville and on down toward the towns of Davy and Gary where the new State Prison is being built

H-M is maintained by tax payers money
They recently went through their database and looked up all the permit buyers that live In-State
Over 200 people where drawing disability checks that had bought yearly permits
State now investigating them all and possibly taking their checks away

Now, other folks in West Virginia, are angry they did that and voicing concerns about the State constantly pushing the trail system down their thoats to promote and then coming after residents in this way
Getting good in WV Laughing

Sounds like it. After meeting Marty and seeing and hearing what's going on in Gilbert sounds like it state wide. I knew the locals didn't ride the H/M systems. Had serveral let me know right quick. I think its crappy that the state did that. Rather see them spend the money doing that than on a few beers and pills. What's it the state's business what they spend there money on. Its only like 25 or 30 dollars for a resident in state permit. Seems that they would be happy that those people bought their permit. What's to say they aren't showing out of state people around. There green trails are like gravel roads and that where the patrol hang out. Word of mouth is your best advertisment.
