Re: Hatfield McCoy trails

Just FYI, I guess local law makers are gunning for outlaw trail users, looking at a $1000 fine if caught riding off marked HM trails. Not sure if anything was passed and in effect yet, saw something was in the works thou.

I have read the bill and I don't think it's as bad as some people are making it out to be. This is an amendment to the HM statute and only refers to leaving the marked trails on the HM system. Basically I think this is a response to the Pocahontas issue with riders leaving a marked trail and going into an active mining area.

But many outlaws don't even connect to HM, so they would be unaffected. For now I would not leave a marked trail, especially off Pocahontas.

Re: Hatfield McCoy trails

Not to thread jack, but wasn't kentucky working on a trail system similar to HMT? I remember seeing a petition in the past on here, which I signed, to start setting them up with state funding in order to revive otherwise dying towns.

Re: Hatfield McCoy trails

Rockhouse is one of my favorite places to go. Especially if you take the day and ride into Matewan. As far as PC/IR/POC goes, we stay a few places but I will agree on Ashland. It's nice but overpriced. There are cabins down in Bramwell and houses in Kimball we stay at. Although there is ZERO to do around Kimball. I highly, HIGHLY, recommend getting bobt maps. The HM trails are nice but get crowded. There are more outlaw trails in that area that you can really have some fun on and see some great places. Download bobt maps in basecamp or mapsource and take a look. Get those maps loaded in basecamp on your PC and you will spend days looking around. I have them loaded on a tablet and also on a garmin nuvi and we don't even touch the HM trails. If you already have a cabin in Ashland, don't sweat it. Again, it's nice and convenient. There are plenty of people there that you can link up with to show you the outlaws. Try to run up Wagon Wheel, pass PC campground and head out toward beer can alley toward the view. Heck of a fun trail and you can ride the creek bed and play for a good bit. Rebel rock is pretty cool if you've never seen it.

Re: Hatfield McCoy trails

Is “The View” a huge, dirt-topped dome of a hill with a 360* view? If so I was there. We ran into an older couple with their grandkids in a couple Yamaha Wolverines. Took us through a creek and up a bunch of unmarked trails to the top of this hill and I’d say the view must have been 60+ miles in every direction.

Yep. Next time you get a chance hit Rebel/Flag rock. It's in the area, kind of the same type of high view but you come off the main "dome", head across to a second location (you can see from where you're at), park your machine and climb some rocks where they have an American flag anchored. It's pretty neat. If you come off WW and head toward the flag rock the ride can be pretty intense in places. Due to some rain we had some steep, soupy climbs along the way. One of the guys in our group was on a bike and it made for quite a few laughs. We're going up wknd of April 26 and staying in Kimball if anyone is riding. I think we're gonna head to War/Welch on Friday and spend Saturday riding the creeks and showing some of the guys the View and Flag. We're at 16-18 ppl so far.

Re: Hatfield McCoy trails

watch trail 20 or 22 iirc on rockhouse. giant boulder just around a tight curve. if it hasnt been removed, it ripped the trailing arm from the frame of my buddies x3xrs, he didnt see it coming around that corner, accelerated, boom. at first we thought he just blew his rear tire, until we went to jack it up and it wasnt going anywhere, thats when we found the trailing arm damage.

Re: Hatfield McCoy trails

Sorry to be off-topic, but how is the availability of 91 or 93 octane gas around the Poco/IR/PC trails? Im thinking about running an ECU flash on my 900 and that would require me to use 91+ octane.

I was only down there once, but it seemed to me it depends where you are. There is only one pump at Ashland and it’s 87. Some of the towns have substantial gas stations with mini-marts and Subways and shit, some are far more primitive. I’d probably bring a few can with me to wherever I was staying, top off every morning and any time I came across it in town. We were riding ~80 miles a day and I don’t think I ever got much below a half a tank. I think your 900 has the 9.5 gallon tank, right?

Re: Hatfield McCoy trails

Yep, has the 9.5 gal tank. Im thinking about getting a tuner so I could reverse the tune on the spot if I really needed too, but I have a feeling once I "unlock" the 900 engine Im not going to want to go back

I see on the websites that the Bramwell outpost and the Mud Pitt sell it near the Pocahontas system/Bramwell, but I have never been around Pineville/Pinnacle Creek to know if it it has any stations.

Re: Hatfield McCoy trails

Most stations carry it. You won't be able to find ethanol free but the different grades are available.
