The trail is easily accessible from Fayette Station Road (ask for directions @ Canyon Rim Visitor’s Center). From the parking lot, it’s 2 miles each way. Expect to spend a minimum of 2 hours hiking (one hour each way), plus time exploring. The trail is gorgeous with small waterfalls and pedestrian bridges. The hike to the main site wasn’t bad,...

There are over 800 stairs down to the river and of course that many back up again. That might not sound like a lot but it will get your heart pumping for sure! If you want views from up high, I suggest you do the endless wall hike. It's much easier and the views are amazing. If you want to... More

This is a great hike. We did the Upper Kaymore trail, and walked only to the level that has the mine entrances. It is a fairly steep walk on switchback trails. We did not do the 800 steps to the bottom of the hill, as we had done it in prior visits and there is not much to see at... More

This is not a hike for the faint-of-heart. My wife and I are in good shape and both do a lot of walking but this trail is what you would call vertical :-) We had a cool day with a light rain and I was VERY thankful for that! Historically speaking, the hike was a real eye-opener to the area's... More

The National Park Service map/brochure gives you the directions to the trailhead that is a one way road that winds under the New River Gorge Bridge to the bottom, crosses the river and ends up at the trailhead. There are lots of switchbacks and narrow roads but we were the only ones on the trail from the Wolf Creek entrance... More

The waterfall is absolutely beautiful! Bridge is pretty for photos also. Just not much parking! Not a long walk to the falls, but does go uphill, but not real steep.

We loved our exploration along this trail. Some work has been done to display the history of the mine, and there are several remains of the old mine still intact. You can feel the cold air from a couple of mine openings, can see the remains of an old coal car, and there is signage to help explain some of... More

This is a great easy hike. There are some inclines but for the most part they are gradual. We went in summer of 2012 and it was HOT! There were plenty of trees to shade the trail as well as over sprays from waterfalls to cool you down. Also streams to get cold water for your face. Perhaps the best... More
