5 reasons all riders ought to roll into National Trailfest

National Trailfest is one of the premier UTV, ATV and dirt bike riding events in the country.

Here are 5 good reasons why you should join the thousands of other riders that roll in for  this nationally-renowned event:

1. Top trails!

Load up your favorite off-roader and come explore the world-famous Hatfield-McCoy Trail System. It has more than 600 miles of trails across 6 southern counties and counting.

From Trailfest in Gilbert, you will have direct access to the Devil Anse trail system, which also connects to the Rockhouse and Buffalo Mountain trail systems. Come, get dirty and have fun!

2. Entertainment

Rollicking country concerts, check. Parades of ATVs, UTVs and dirtbikes, check. Fireworks, check. What more could you want?

Well, how about mud pit and drag racing? Or demo rides to help you decide your next vehicle purchase? Or even mechanical bull riding?

3. Fall beauty

Fall in the southern part of West Virginia brings brilliant reds, oranges and yellows to the mountains. And the weather in early October is usually mild— not too hot, not too cold,  just right for camping out and playing outside.

4. Bites

There’s no need to eat on the run: meal packages include home-cooked country-style breakfasts and dinners. Yum!

5. Kid-friendly activities

Get the little ones in on the action with activities like a battery-operated drag race for kids ages 4-7 and a youth mini motocross track. They can leap around on the inflatables, too!
