New for 2018: Resident Permits

Resident Permits will now be available for Lee, Dickenson, Buchanan, Wise and Tazewell County Virginia residents as well as residents of the City of Norton for $30. Unlike our regular annual passes, these passes will only be good until the end the calendar year in which they are purchased. Proof of county residency required. Check your local retailer for availability.

Day Permits

Day permits are not sold online. Day permits can be purchased for $20 by visiting one of our permit retailers.

Permit Placement

The motorized permit is a sticker that must be visible on the LEFT SIDE of your HELMET, and a valid permit is required for trail access.


Your permit stickers or cards will be mailed to you within 5-7 working days. In the meantime, feel free to ride our trails using the “Temporary Permit” that will be emailed to you after you complete the purchase process. Just print and ride!
Make sure to carry your temporary permit and photo ID at all times when on the trail until you receive your permit sticker or card.

Permits are also available at local retailers, so please remember that shopping local helps keep our economy strong, creates jobs and helps us build more trails. Find a local permit retailer.

To order multiple permits, please submit separate orders.  We will need each permit holder to agree to the terms of use and trail rules.
