Top News

OAK HILL, WV (WVNS) — New River ATV is back open, and guides said they were excited to get back on the trails over Memorial Day weekend.

Owner, Brandon Shaw, said the weekend was slower than usual, but he is starting to get more calls. He said they are grateful to reopen and fortunate that it is easy to practice social distancing while riding ATVs.

“We’re already 20 feet apart when we’re riding through the forest,” said Shaw. “Really, all we had to change is our check-in procedures. We’re only checking in one group at a time. Then we’re sanitizing everything that’s used during the check-in process and then we bring a second group in and check them out.”

Shaw said they also sanitize the ATVs and the gear between each group. New River ATV is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at ACE Adventure Resort.
