When you hit the trail system, there are ample attractions along the way. A popular stop includes the grave of William Anderson “Devil Anse” Hatfield, the patriarch of the Hatfields during their 19th-century feud with the McCoys, near the West Virginia-Kentucky border.

You can explore historic sites associated with the Hatfield-McCoy feud along the trail system. We love Hatfield & McCoy Airboat Tours’ epic ride, speedy and comfortable, transporting you back to the 19th century, when the Tug Fork River was the epicenter of the feud.
