CHARLESTON, WV (WVNS) – You could win a UTV from a special Fall giveaway hosted by the governor, whether you live in West Virginia or not!

Governor Jim Justice joined the Hatfield-McCoy Regional Recreation Authority today, October 6, 2022, in announcing a special Fall giveaway. The giveaway could land two lucky winners brand-new 2023 Kawasaki Teryx four-seater UTV’s. The giveaway was designed to encourage riders to get out and explore the colors of the season on trails this fall. 

Anyone who purchases a 2022 riding permit for the Hatfield McCoy trails before November 15, 2022 is automatically entered to win the prize and the two winners will be randomly selected on December 15, 2022. Permits cost $50 for non-residents and $26.50 for West Virginia residents. One permit provides full access to all Hatfield-McCoy Trail Systems and is valid through December 31 of the calendar year purchased. Both the in-state and out-of-state giveaway winners will receive a 2023 Kawasaki Teryx four seater UTV in Metallic Sierra Blue.

“The Hatfield-McCoy Trails have been an incredible draw for many visitors to our state, as well as our in-state residents. Last year alone, 29,500 new riders explored the expansive trail system! On top of that, we’ve invested hundreds of millions of dollars to not only make sure that the trails are in great condition, but also to ensure that the communities near the trails are growing and ready to welcome guests. I can’t think of a better way to get more riders out on the trails this fall than by making the deal even sweeter with a major giveaway like this!”

The Hatfield-McCoy Trails are over 1,000 miles of trails in the mountains of southern West Virginia. As one of the largest off-highway vehicle trail systems in the world, the Hatfield-McCoy Trails are open every day in the year and offer something for every skill level. Fall is an especially exciting time to hit the trails, as temperatures are mild and it’s a unique way to see the leaves across the Mountain State.

Hatfield-McCoy Trail permits can be purchased at any Hatfield-McCoy Trailhead facility: Bearwallow, Buffalo Mountain, Cabwaylingo, Devil Anse, Ivy Branch, Pinnacle Creek, Pocahontas, Rockhouse and Warrior, along with the Hatfield-McCoy Trails Welcome Center and Country Roads Visitor Center; or at one of over 130 authorized HMT permit vendor locations such as local ATV outfitters stores and a variety of lodging providers.

“Year after year, I’m blown away by the amount of people who support the Hatfield-McCoy Trail System by purchasing permits. We wanted to give back a little and felt like this giveaway was a great way to do just that. A big thank you is in order for Governor Justice’s continued support of all that our team is doing in Southern West Virginia.”
