    Hatfield McCoy trails on the TW200!

    So last Thursday evening my two oldest boys and I drove down from Marietta Ohio to Twin Hollow campgrounds in Gilbert WV (about a 3 hour drive) We met a bunch of my family (siblings and parents) down there and the plan was to get up early Friday and hit the Rockhouse trail head. I rode my 2019 TW200 while the rest of my family and sons rode in side by sides. We completed an 80 mile loops in about 10 hours an had a great ride! There is some real variety in the terrain out there! long flowy sandy trails, mud holes, loose rocky hill climbs, just really something for everyone! I was surprised that I didn’t dump the bike once in 80 miles, can’t wait to go back and do it again! Here are a few pics from the ride.

    Haven’t been there since about 2002, but when I went it was great also. I was amazed at the amount of trail riding one could pack into a few days. Really great systems up there. Thanks for sharing and the great pics. I love family rides.

    Great places to ride!! Been once... in '05 or '06 on my Big Red (3-wheeler). Itching to get back up there.

    How were the trails dust wise while there?

    Not sure about dust but, by the looks of the bike, a fair amount of maybe muddy water or, at least some water crossings.

    I was there in 2008 and most of the trails are not for beginners, even the green trails are sometimes tough. Depends on which trail system you visit. Please don't ride alone. Lots of rocks for sure but a heck of a lot of fun.

    Dust wasn’t too bad at all, they had gotten a lot of rain a few day prior so it kept the dust down and there was a lot of mud puddles 2”- 14” deep (just perfect for the TW!) I definitely agree that the green (Beginner) trails really do have some sketchy sections and hill climbs too! We stayed on the blue and green trails and I was surprised at the difficulty in some sections.

    Yeah, the Beginner trails aren't really "Beginner" per say, you have to have some experience. There were parts of Blue & Black that were easy, but of course didn't last long. I did some of the Black trails on Big Red by myself, and some of the climbs were pretty gnarly!! Although I felt pretty comfortable & confident..... finally thought better of it, and turned around "just in case".

    80 miles in those trails on a TW is pretty darn good.
