New River Gorge NP
Plan your visit to New River Gorge National Park and Preserve located in the West Virginia mountains. Today, New River Gorge is beloved for outdoor pursuits!
The park is open to visitors year-round, but I would recommend late spring or early fall. New River is in the Appalachian Mountains and makes for the perfect road trip.
White Water Rafting
Home to some of the best rapids on the East Coast, this is a worthwhile adventure. Enjoy everything from a leisure float to Class IV and V rapids. We had a blast!
Try an easy trail like the Endless Wall Trail or the Long Point Trail or visit Sandstone Falls, a 1500-foot-wide waterfall on the New River.
