All off-road enthusiasts are encouraged to join us as we gather on the West Virginia State Capitol Grounds for a common goal to support Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) trail use in the Wild and Wonderful state of West Virginia. The trail rides will be at the novice level and will be opened to anyone that wishes to go. To help with logistics and to decrease traffic issues, we will be breaking up into suitable convoys to get from the capitol to the trail-head. We will be touring the back-country mountains of Kanawha County. Each will be expected to bring a bagged lunch.
