Sandstone: Go to the visitor center first to get acclimated to this enormous tract of land and it's own special beauty. There is a 12 minute video and the center has educational/environmental exhibits to enjoy. The center was built environmentally sensitive to the area. There...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.
