We stopped at the visitors center and then took the steps down to the last landing. It was well worth the effort. Beautiful scenery, especially in the fall. If you take the stairs, take your time, stop and check out the view and the plant...More

Took train from Charleston thru New River Gorge to White Sulfur Springs. Leisurely 3 hour ride in a comfortable train to view the color change of trees and beautiful falls along the floor of the Gorge. Best way to see the Gorge and bridges.

I had no idea West Virginia was so beautiful. The view of the gorge is spectacular from the Visitors Center, which also has some very interesting exhibits. Well worth stopping by.

We stopped by one of the visitors' centers traveling to West Virginia and enjoyed the absolutely spectacular views of the West Virginia fall landscape. We'll stop again when traveling through this area and plan to spend more time. Beautiful!

Gorgeous view of the River. You can walk down a lot of steps (280) to get a closer view or see it from the top of the overlook. Also a great view of the New River Gorge bridge. Really good photo opportunity.

We went at the beginning of the summer, but I can only imagine how beautiful this area is in the fall. Be sure to bring sunscreen, a big hat, and bug spray. Visit the visitor center and several overlooks. Also, do the Fayette Station Road...More

We just visited for a half day, but in the future we will at least stay overnight. The park is very long and stretches the river gorge. It can take 2 - 3 house to drive to different parts, including an old mining area. There...More

Stopped here for a quick rest stop on my way to North Carolina. The views are phenomenal. The rest area/visitors center was very well maintained with lots of informational brochures. I would recommend the walking path. I didn't get to go too far down the...More
