Historic Bed & Breakfast in Eckman, West Virginia
McDowell County, WV has THE best ATV trails in the eastern USA! There are 100s of miles of FREE trails throughout our county, as well as the famed “Hatfield-McCoy Trail System” trails, and it’s LEGAL to ride ATVs on our roads, so you can ride your ATV or UTV right from the Elkhorn Inn to the trails! We have plenty of free parking next to the Inn, and a power washer guests can use, as well. We can also store ATVs, UTVs, and dirt bikes for our guests, so they can just jump on their quads or bikes and ride the minute they get to the Inn!
Fun places to ride near the Elkhorn Inn include through Elbert and Filbert to “Miracle Mountain Wilderness Park”, which has a beautiful 1940s log hunting cabin, an amazing view, picnic tables, and a nearby koi pond (and the koi love Cheerios!), and up to Burke Mountain,where there are wild blackberries to pick! Beartown has gorgeous “leaf-peeping” in the fall, and there are fabulous mud puddles to ride through all over the place! You can even ride your ATV to the Black Wolf Links Golf Course! There are great picnic spots, as well as hamburger and BBQ stands along the way, too! And Riders Inn Cafe in Northfork to stop at on the way back home to the Inn! And you can dig delicious wild ramps in the spring with us up on “Ramp Mountain”, pick wild backberries all through July and August, and “leaf-peep” and pick wild cattails all fall through Halloween!
