Hatfield-McCoy Trails

First SUV?

While many (most?) of the vehicles we see on the trail are Jeeps in the ‘standard’ form, lately we’ve been noticing a greater number of SUVs. It’s not difficult to guess why SUVs are increasingly popular for exploring the backcountry. They’ve been around nearly as long as the Jeep (and similar short-wheelbase vehicles), and since…
