The Ultimate Guide To The New River Gorge National Park And Preserve In West Virginia

In a state filled with beautiful scenery and stunning natural wonders, there’s still one that stands out from all the rest: West Virginia’s New River Gorge. Despite its ancient history – it’s the cradle for one of the world’s oldest rivers – the gorge has seemingly just been discovered by the rest of the nation (and even the world). Of course, we West Virginians have known and loved this world treasure for centuries, so if you’re just discovering this hidden gem, let us take this opportunity to tell you everything you need to know about visiting the New River Gorge National Park and Preserve in Wild, Wonderful West Virginia.

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

Can’t decide which part of the New River Gorge to visit? See it all via a drive: try the New River Gorge Scenic Loop or the African American Heritage Tour.

Of course, we didn’t even touch on one of the most unique train stations in America or the New River glass dome train ride or the old coal mine you can actually tour. What else did we miss? To learn even more, visit the National Park Service website.
