ATV & Spearhead Trails
Our ATV trails offer riders an adrenaline packed adventure while surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the Virginia mountains. There's an experience for all levels so don't be afraid if it's your first time. For solo ATVs, seasoned guides will ensure you feel comfortable on the ATV before taking to the trails, while double-seater ATVs allow you to sit back and enjoy the ride.

Jawbone Trail System / Coal Canyon at Jewell Valley
The Jawbone Trail/Coal Canyon at Jewell Valley Trail covers 10,000 acres with 4 overlooks. This trial has two names because it is cut in half by the county line between Tazewell County and Buchanan County. The trail changes names from Jawbone Trail to Coal Canyon at Jewell Valley at the County line. This trail is unique in that it allows 4 wheel drive vehicles that are street legal like Jeeps, in addition to ATV’s, UTV’s, side by side, dirt bikes, and is well suited for dual sport bikes, so users may find the rating of these trails easier than most others.
This trail also features a play area for jeeps and has some great wildlife viewing. Made up of mostly gravel roads with about 30 % of the system on dirt roads and some sections on the Jewell Valley side consisting of scenic asphalt roads, riders will find the same grading system of Green trails, Blue Trails, and Black Trails as well as some yellow trails for ATV’s only.
