Mercer County, WV

All-terrain adventures for all seasons.


When it comes to all-terrain, we’ve got it all: a vast trail network and a county known for great food, brews and history.


Our ATV-friendly community starts with the famous Hatfield-McCoy Trails. 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.


Even if you don’t own an ATV, you can still experience the trails. Crazy Mountain Cycles offers rentals and features hotel accommodations for riders and their families. Close to food, gas and the trails, the best part of this property is the large 13-bed room with a full kitchen and two baths. Whether for extended families or weekend celebrations, be sure to check out the specials for Polaris rentals when you book a room. If you are bringing a machine, Crazy Mountain Cycle’s locked storage is a great place to park your ATV for the night.


Perfect for families and individuals on vacation or business, you can rent ATVS from WV ATV Rentals, located in Rock near the Pocahontas and Indian Ridge trail systems. All of the ATVS are automatic and 4-wheel drive with plenty of options to choose from: Can-Am 450 L, Can-Am 450 L (seats 2), Polaris Ranger Crew 570 (seats 4) and Polaris RZR 900, a side-by-side. Lodging options are available, so you can wake up to a sunrise every morning before your trip.


WV ATV Rentals also provides guided tours than can last an afternoon or several days—book an overnight excursion and camp in the woods.


Choose from the all new RZR RS1, Can-Am X3, Polaris RZR XP 1000 2 seater and 4 seater or RZR Turbo. Don’t forget to get your pass and map from an authorized Hatfield and McCoy dealer before you set out on the trails.


Trust an experienced guide from 304 Outlaw Trail Tours to show you the scenic locations and hidden gems offered along the way.


Hillbilly Heaven Trail Guide can also take you out on the trails as a guide. You must bring your own machine or rent them from WV ATV Rentals. Sandy Bailey, the guide, is a lifelong resident of Mercer County and can share plenty of history and stories about the area. Much of the land on the trail once belonged to the railroad and coal companies and you can still find many abandoned structures and small coal towns on your journey.


Any time is a great time to ride the trails. Spring and summer are stunningly beautiful. The fall offers cooler weather. You can even bundle up and trek through southern West Virginia’s mountains in the snow!
