Many of the trails converge with “ATV-friendly towns” where riders can stop for lunch or a brief walk. Yearly permit fees for West Virginia residents cost $26.50, and can be obtained at the park’s visitor center, trailheads, and through Hatfield McCoy’s website. October, 2010 marks the 10th anniversary of Hatfield-McCoy hosting the National Trail Fest, the country’s largest ATV riding festival.
