I've never heard of any good OHV trails or anything but most of the time I can find some old logging or coal mining roads that are pretty rough. Got plenty of them around lol. BTW i live in Greenbrier County don't know if that's close to you or not.

East Lynn has tons of trails. They range from easy to expert. Smiley Face is pretty easy but is a little rough. Hells Holler is just brutal, as is Queens camp. There are several trails but it is easy to get lost. lol Even guys who run it get turned around. 10 mile is there but as you know its mud,mud,mud.

Ivy is the place. It is outside charleston somewhere. I have never been up there but it has great wheeling also from pics and vids I have seen. I think they have a variety of trails also. I will see if I can get some info for you.

IVY=Take 119 south out of charleston. It is close to 15 minutes past the wal mart.. Get off on the mccorkle exit and go a few miles up that road.. Go to the concrete bridge and make a left up the hill.. You go up the hill and cross over and then drop down into ivy... Or got about another 5-6 miles past mccorkle to to Julian exit then cross the bridge and go around 3 miles and hang a right on ivy branch rd. And go in that way

Here is some info on Good Evening Ranch

How do you get to East Lynn from Huntington. I'm going to Marshall right now and would like to go there but I'm not real familiar with the area. Is it pretty close to Huntington?
