Kentucky, West Virginia Team Up On Hatfield McCoy Geo Trail

WILLIAMSON, W.Va. (AP) - The home of a historic Appalachian feud has a new tourist attraction - the Hatfield McCoy Geo Trail.

Geocaching is a modern-day version of treasure hunting and a global pastime.

The trail is a partnership between the Tug Valley Chamber of Commerce in Williamson and Tour Pike County in Pikeville. It opened last month with a special event for 518 visitors from 18 states.

There are 15 caches in Mingo, Logan and Pike counties, each in historic locations linked to the families who were featured in a History miniseries this spring.

Hunters can get a passport and collect special stamps at each cache.

Anyone who finds them all takes home a collectible coin featuring the family patriarchs, Devil Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy.
