Trekking along the northern boundary of the Ivy Branch Trail System, 18 is an easy dirt road that is generally one to one and a half vehicles wide.  The road surface is hard-packed dirt with occasional potholes.  Halfway through the trail is an optional mud pit with extremely deep ruts.  The trail passes a unique overhang rock formation and foundational remains of a coal tipple.  The trail is good for any vehicle. 

There is no camping onsite, but many cabin rentals nearby.

Hatfield-McCoy Trails are open 365 days a year, from sunup to sundown.  Permits are required for all operators and passengers.  Additionally, all drivers and passengers must wear a helmet on the trails.  This includes full-size vehicles such as Jeeps.
