Coal Canyon Trail

Trail Overview

On May 16, 2015 Coal Canyon multi-use trial system was officially opened with a little over 20 miles of large fields of views that you can only get on a reclamation area and has grown through the years to include 200+ miles of connected riding with Ridgeview Trail covering approximately 8,000 acres that can take riders to Breaks Interstate Park and the ATV friendly towns of Grundy & Haysi. Coal Canyon is perfect for a mixed-use system. Riders are able to see each other from great distances.

Coal Canyon Trail has 127 miles over 5,600 acres with a balanced number of beginner, intermediate, and expert opportunities. Riders will find open canyons that descend into patches of woods and fields where elk and other wildlife live in their natural habitat. The Trail connects to the ATV friendly town of Grundy and has Visitor Center like no other with Southern Gap Outdoor Adventure Center.
