The Coal River Watershed Group has created an 88 mile water trail(The Walhonde Water Trail) on the Big, Little and Coal Rivers.

The region offers rugged terrain coupled with beautiful paddling conditions for most of the year. The new trail, or trails system (we have broken the watershed down into 9 eight mile long trail segments) is acknowledged by the WV Department of Natural Reasources, WV DEP and the WV DOH.

Public put-in locations are being marked with signs showing the Walhonde Water Trail access sites. Trail Heads in Whitesville, Madison, and St. Albans, WV.


The proximity of the trail to the Hatfield McCoy SUV Trail system provides a number of camping sites as well as overnight lodging.
Visit the Hatfield and McCoy web site for more information on local amenities.




Access to the Coal Rivers include Corrider G at Alum Creek; St. Albans at Gateway Plaza; Whitesville, on RT 3 and Madison on Rt 119.
