Trail Overview

Opened April 2017, Haysi’s Ridgeview trail system is a combination of tree-lined trails and wide open ridge riding with plenty of spectacular viewscapes. Initially, there are over 75 miles of multi-use trails and a good mix of Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert routes, with more on the horizon. The trailhead is conveniently located just outside the ATV-friendly Town of Haysi adjacent to Kiwanis Park.  There’s ample parking at the trailhead for trucks with trailers.

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 Ridgeview system. Separate equestrian trails are being developed that will connect to Breaks Interstate Park. Those trails are scheduled to open later this year.

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