The Hatfield-McCoy Trails cut and wind through the beautiful mountains of southern West Virginia to create one of the largest off-highway vehicle trail system in the world!

The trails are open for business 365 days a year and offer many different trail types to suit riders of every interest and skill level.

Pinnacle Rock State Park

Located along Route 52, near historic Bramwell in Mercer County, Pinnacle Rock State Park is one of the more interesting day use parks operated by the West Virginia State Park system.

Towering above the rugged mountains of southeastern West Virginia, Pinnacle Rock is an unusual sandstone formation reaching 3,100 feet above sea level. This park provides a relaxing picnic area in an unusual scenic setting.

The park was opened in 1938 when the Conservation Commission purchased a 26 acre tract of land surrounding the rock. Parking areas, walkway and a large picnic shelter with a stone fireplace were then constructed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in conjunction with the state of West Virginia. Today there are nearly 400 acres which include Jimmy Lewis Lake (seasonally stocked with trout) located nearby within the park boundary.
