Bill To Open Hatfield-McCoy Recreation Area To Off-Road Vehicles Signed Into Law




West Virginia legislation to allow off-road vehicles to operate on trails -including in the Hatfield-McCoy Recreation Area - was signed into law by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin last month. The trails are managed by the Hatfield-McCoy Regional Recreation Authority and House Bill 2689 allowed the agency to change its rules for trail use. The trails are currently restricted to ATVs, dune buggy-type vehicles and motorcycles. They cover 600-plus miles in the mountains of Southern West Virginia. and are open daily, (www.trailsheaven.com).

In West Virginia, “off-road vehicles” are defi ned as motor vehicles that do not have low-pressure tires and which are constructed, manufactured or modifi ed for off-road driving. Under the new law, licensed off-road vehicle operators will be required to be in possession of their registration and a valid driver’s license. Off-road vehicle must also comply with exhaust noise provisions.
