Trail Overview


Ride Virginia’s most exciting trail destination! The MountainView “Off Highway Vehicle” (OHV) system is a multi-use trail system primarily designed for ATVs and Side by Sides. The approximate 100 miles of picturesque trails begin in the ATV-friendly town of St. Paul where riders have access to a vast selection of lodging, shopping, and dining offerings. The town of Coeburn trailhead opened Summer 2017, offering riders even more town access to ATV-friendly Coeburn’s conveniences, dining and shopping.

The trail system offers a satisfying mix of green and blue trails for riders wishing a more easy going experience beneath a cool canopy of trees and foliage. Mountain View also offers experienced riders a heart-pounding, seat-shaking assortment of twisting, turning black trails for hard core ATVers and 17 miles of single track for all you dirt bike riders out there.

Please note: We consider this trail system to be “multi-use” and open to dirt bikes, mountain bikes and hikers. However, horses are not allowed on the Mountain View system.

Of course, it’s always important to ride safely, wear a helmet, and obey ALL the trail rules.
