Trekking the Best ATV Trails
Throughout North America and many other parts of the world ATVs and
dirt bike off road trail parks and facilities continue to grow. As the
sport of ATV racing and recreational off road riding becomes more
popular, the success of established trails encourages additional riding areas
to be developed.
The growing number of enthusiastic ATV riders is not the only cause for
a demand of more trails. All ATV riders, new and old, want more trails
for the challenge. ATVers demand new trails because they strive to
conquer anything they can. Riding off road with ATVs has become a sport
many dedicate themselves to, but there are just as many people who enjoy
the sport on a sporadic basis.
Renting ATVs and riding the trails is not an uncommon tourist
attraction in many areas of the United States. Because of this many people have
experienced and enjoyed ATV riding at some of the trail parks around
the nation. Some now dedicated ATV riders started out by taking a
recreational off road drive at one of these tourist trail parks.
Perhaps some of the most extravagant ATV and dirt bike trails
established are those in the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia. The
Hatfield-McCoy Trails stretch for over 500 miles and growing. They have come
to be known as “Trails Heaven.” These ATV trails attract all types of
rider and accommodations for the different crowds are abundant.
In the areas surrounding “Trails Heaven” there are hotels, bed and
breakfast inns, ATV rentals shops, ATV and dirt bike mechanical shops,
guided tours and other activities to fill a weekend vacation. This area is
the place to be for any of the ATV racing, riding and special events
you are interested in. Bringing your own off road vehicle is allowed at
“Trails Heaven,” but a permit is required for all riders, rental or
The Hatfield-McCoy Trails are also the host of several high scale ATV
and dirt bike riding events throughout the year. These are the events
where you can meet hundreds of fellow ATV enthusiasts. In 2005 there
will be an ATV/dirt bike jamboree for riders to participate in. The
Appalachian trails also coordinate a Dirt Days riding event. They will
also be the host for the National ATV and dirt bike rally week in ’05.
Places like “Trails Heaven” are a great riding spot for ATVers of any
skill level because they have the proper accommodations for all. There
are many other similar ATV trails established, however, if you are a
regular rider, you probably want to find your own, local trails and make
the big trail parks a weekend event.
Whether you are new to the sport or just looking for some new trails to
experience, there are several web sites that help you locate the right
place. At trailsource.com you can choose a region anywhere in the
world to search for a specific ATV riding area. ATVTrails.org does the
same, but for United States trails only. With these search tools you can
find a local riding spot, or plan to visit the large, high traffic
trails for a weekend, such as at the Hatfield-McCoy Trails.
