LOGAN, W.Va. — Little Coal River Trail System in Boone County and Ivy Branch Trail System in Lincoln County will be closing down effective Monday, Oct. 19, 2015, according to officials with The Hatfield McCoy Trails.

All other trail systems and the remaining 500 miles of trail will be open to riders with no changes, he said.
“We appreciate the landowners for allowing us to use their property for the past twelve years,” Lusk said. “They have been very good partners with the trails as have all the 96 coal, timber, natural gas and land holding companies that allow the Hatfield McCoy Trails to use their property.”
