Paddle A Secluded Waterway Hiding At The Bottom Of The Trough In West Virginia

The South Branch Potomac River runs through the Allegheny Mountains of Hampshire and Hardy Counties in West Virginia. And along it is a narrow, six-mile wooded gorge that is almost inaccessibly steep. Bounded by Mill Creek Mountain to the west and Sawmill Ridge to the east, this area is only open to a select few paddlers and train travelers. But if you’re one of those lucky few with a boat or a train ticket, you’re in for a beautiful journey.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
