Telephone: Frontier Communications Internet: Hughes Net and possibly Frontier Communications Cellphone Coverage: Varies with providers SURROUNDING AREA Pleasant Valley Farm is located in the Cumberland Mountains region of southwestern West Virginia, an area perhaps best known as a destination for outdoor recreation and off-road vehicle tourism. Thousands of tourists visit the region to explore the rugged landscape using all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), utility-terrain vehicles (UTVs), and other motorized off-road vehicles. The network of trails and backroads that lead through the region is complimented by designated and maintained off-road trails managed by the state-operated Hatfield-McCoy Trails. The region was formerly among the most productive coal-mining regions in the world. Many tourists are drawn to the ghost towns and abandoned industrial sites that may still be found within its forested mountains. Hundreds of thousands of miners and their families lived in the surrounding mountains through the early 1900s, though by the 1950s, employment began to dwindle. The richest seams had been mined out, and mechanization replaced many traditional mining jobs. For instance, the population of adjoining McDowell County had dropped from nearly 100,000 people in 1950 to little more than 10,000 today. Though the decline in mining presented enormous difficulties, the decrease in population and industrialism allowed the environment to renew. Forests teeming with wildlife now cover vast expanses of mountain terrain, and some streams in the region are nearly primeval in their character, notably those in nearby Twin Falls State Park. Residents cite the rural landscape and its welcoming communities as a principal reason for their residency. Coalfields Expressway A significant factor in regional growth, a new multi-lane expressway now connects the area to Interstates 64 and 77 at Beckley 22-mile drive that can be completed in less than half an hour. A new section under construction will see a second exit built less than five miles from the property. The route will eventually extend to the US-52 expressway in western Virginia, opening some of the most rugged regions in the Appalachian Mountains to increased commerce. The expressways completion into the area has resulted in a sharp increase in regional residential and commercial investment. COMMUNITIES Herndon, WV, is an unincorporated community in Wyoming County, West Virginia, United States. It has a population of 566 as of 2010. Bud, WV, is a census-designated place in Wyoming County, West Virginia, United States, along Barkers Creek and West Virginia Route 10. As of the 2010 census, its population was 487. Two incorporated communities are located nearby surrounding Wyoming CountyMullens and Pineville. Mullens Two miles east of Itmann, Mullens is the largest municipality in the region, with some 1,500 residents. The national historic district in Mullens includes 95 buildings built between 1918 and 1929. The town is sometimes considered a bedroom community within the greater Beckley metropolitan area and is a drive of 25 minutes from the city by the Coalfields Expressway. Pineville The seat of justice for Wyoming County, Pinevilles population, is nearly 650. It may best be known for its elaborate stone courthouse, built by many of the stonemasons employed to supervise the construction of the historic Itmann store. The Castle Rock towering near the center of the community, is a renowned natural wonder. City of Beckley A 45-minute drive from Herndon, the City of Beckley, with a population of more than 17,000 and a market area of nearly 125,000, is the largest municipality in southern West Virginia. The city is an interstate transportation hub. Expressways I-77, I-64 and US-19 converge there. The center of the New River Gorge National Park and Preserve near Grandview is just outside Beckley. REGIONAL ATTRACTIONS Tourism is now a chief economic force in the region, especially where off-road vehicle recreation is concerned. Primary travel draws are hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, camping, and kayaking. Though the coal industry employs many mine workers and the timber industry employs many laborers, the travel industry continues to employ and supplement an increasing number of county residents. Many residents have opened restaurants and lodging facilities, including cabins and vacation rentals, to host visitors exploring the off-road adventure trail network. Hatfield-McCoy Trails One of the southern states largest networks of off-road motor vehicle trails, the Pinnacle Creek Trail system approaches within a mile and a half of the property. Part of the Hatfield-McCoy Trails, the trail explores more than 100 miles of some of the most rugged mountain country in the Mountain State. The nearest trailhead is located 1.5 miles from the property. In 2021, more than 94,000 riding permits were sold
