Hiking To This Remote Geological Wonder In West Virginia Is Like Traveling To Another Planet
Despite its name, West Virginia’s New River is actually among the oldest rivers on the continent. And not only is it home to some of the country’s best whitewater rafting, but it’s also an absolutely amazing area for hikers. One glimpse of this breathtaking area will leave you feeling like you’re on another planet.
The New River Gorge encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, and it's truly breathtaking.
The park is located in the Appalachian Mountains of southern West Virginia, which is an exceptionally beautiful area.
Hike the 2.7-mile Endless Wall trail for views like these.
This trail is fairly easy, but some of the pathways are narrow, so keep that in mind if you're visiting with young children.
For a gorgeous but challenging hike, check out the Kaymoor Miner's Trail.
This is a steep hike down to the old Kaymore mine, but the scenery (especially the waterfall) is stunning.
