Since 2000, folks with a passion for trail riding have flocked to Gilbert, WV for one of the best celebrations of trail riding and off-road fun there is: National TrailFest. Initially begun by the Hatfield-McCoy Trails, and taken over by the City of Gilbert in 2012, the event has only grown in size through the years, and now offers a variety of activities and events as a part of TrailFest.
TrailFest 2022 will feature an obstacle course and mudpit, both of which are favorites for riders who attend. There will also be a Truck show on Thursday, October 6, and a machine show on October 7. Both days will also put the spotlight on live music, with multiple musicians attending the event.
There will be a petting zoo on Thursday, October 7, from 2-7 pm. Other events and activities include a parade, Casino Night, Drag Racing, and a variety of demos.
There are also several attendance options. To participate in the drag strip, mud pit, and obstacle course, folks can purchase either a one day event pass, or a full event pass, which will give access to the entire event, including the aforementioned activities, and other fun events, such as Vegas Night, scavenger hunts, and the Finding Bigfoot Contest.
