New River Gorge National Park & Preserve conserves over 70,000 acres of land along the New River between the towns of Hinton and Fayetteville. The park and surrounding area are rich in cultural and natural history, with an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, and camping are highly popular activities amongst park visitors. And through National Park Foundation programs, hikers can participate in one of the hosted programs that promote parks as places for health and wellness, not just scenic beauty!
Other National Park Service programs include guided historic walks, nature programs, and an abundance of programs for kids too. In short, this huge park has activities for all shapes, sizes, and kinds. Don’t pass this one up if you’re in Wild, Wonderful West Virginia.
