I was at Bear Wallow on May 12th and Rockhouse on May 13th. It was a little wet but my Ace had no issues. We rode about 60% green, 30% blue and 10% black. It handled everything I threw at it. Such a more enjoyable ride over my 500ho.

So far after I widen our ace to 60 inches , we have made it everywhere our S can go. Before I widen it , we almost flipped it about a dozen times and succeeded once but thank goodness for the roll cage. Riding trails in KY should be similar to WV.
Hatfield-McCoy system are color-coded by degree of difficulty.
Similar to the skiing industry, all trails in the Hatfield-McCoy system are color-coded by degree of difficulty. The “Easiest,” or green rated trails, are generally wide and more level trails. These trails were mainly used by gas and logging companies in the past. The “More Difficult,”or blue rated trails, are generally more narrow, uneven trails, with some rocks and obstacles on the paths. The “Most Difficult,” or black rated trails, can be extremely steep, with larger rocks and more obstacles on the sometimes overgrown paths. The “Extreme Difficult,” or black/red rated trails, combine the aspects of the “Most Difficult” trails, along with the stipulations that no riders under 18, no machines under 200cc’s, and no two-wheel drive machines are allowed. Single Track, or orange rated trails, are divided into “More Difficult” and “Most Difficult” and are for experienced riders only. Trail maps are continually updated and readily available at each trailhead to alert riders of any changes in the trail system.
OK, that makes sense.
Some of the trail markers in WA State are colored like that too, but there are also circles with patterns in them to indicate difficulty in addition to the colors, so I didn't put it together.
