Get out and explore the great outdoors in Mercer County, West Virginia! Just take off along the trails. The hardest part is choosing which one to take.

 

Check out the dirt track, or the winding Hatfield-McCoy Trails, since they’re one of the largest ATV trail systems in the nation. More than 700 miles of off-road adventure wind through these southern mountains, and it all begins with Mercer County’s Pocahontas trailhead in historic Bramwell. This convenient access point to 1-77 has a spacious parking lot and rest area. Best of all, it’s open year round. Get your ATV permits and merchandise at Bramwell City Hall, Bramwell Soda Fountain and Corner Shop, The Quality Hotel and Conference Center, Buffalo Trails and Millers ATV. Even if you don’t own an ATV, you can still experience the outdoors by renting ATVS from WV ATV Rentals, located in Rock near the Pocahontas and Indian Ridge trail systems.

 

There’s also our 3 state parks, or local park gems. Take in one of the best mountain views from Pinnacle Rock, or get deep into the Bluestone Gorge by swooping thousands feet down the aerial tramway from Pipestem State Park.

 

After spending time on the trails, head to Mercer Mall, host to over 70 specialty shops.

 

Our backyard can be your playground. Bluefield City Park, also called Lotito City Park, is not just for the kids. The park boasts of a 14-mile trail system in the wooden areas around the park. There are 7 recreational trails in the 440-acre park where residents and visitors can run, walk, bike and explore outdoors.

 

If you are looking for something to do at night, the Railyard, in Bluefield, has live music to go with their craft beer and awesome menu.
