West Virginia is known as “Almost Heaven” and it’s no coincidence the Hatfield-McCoy Trails have become known as “TrailsHeaven.” Southern hospitality combines with over 500 miles of trails (more in progress), to form life-long memories and create an experience you will want to repeat again and again.”
