The Longest, Fastest Sled Run On The East Coast Is Right Here In West Virginia

It’s appropriate that West Virginia can lay claim to the longest, fastest sled run on the East Coast. After all, we do have the longest, deepest river gorge in Eastern America (the New River Gorge, of course!) cutting through our backyard, as well as two of the highest bridges in the world (the New River Gorge Bridge and the Glade Creek Bridge) spanning it. So of course, it’s fitting that Blackwater Falls Sled Run is among the longest, fastest sled runs in the nation!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
