Nice views of the bridge, takes you right down to the bottom where you can swim or camp. Great access to the river. Several pull off spots where you can take photos of the bridge and surroundings.

Great veiws of the New River Bridge from the old bridge. There are mountain streams and a waterfall along the route. There are a few hiking trails as well. Start at the visitor center, and you'll come out the other side near Fayetteville.

Travel along this over 100 year old road and learn the history of the coal mining that once went on in the area and view a one of a kind bridge that has been built so the long and narrow winding road doesn't have to be traveled any longer. You will see beautiful scenery as well as the river that... More

Small, winding, tight road down to the New River. The route everyone used to use as a 2-way route across the river until the New River Gorge Bridge was built in the 70s. Now, it is a one-way road that gives you an amazing view of the bridge that you just can't get from the overlooks at the visitor's center.... More

Best kept secret. Hair pin turns. One way road close to visitors center. Neat to stop on lower bridge to look out at the river and up at the new bridge.

A great road to experience on bike. Everybody who enjoys up and downs of the road should try this rim to rim ride through the New River Gorge.

Fayette Station Road is a wonderful scenic drive that begins right near the Canyon Rim Visitor Center of the New River Gorge National River just off of Hwy 19 shortly after crossing the famous New River Gorge Bridge. Until the completion of the New River Gorge Bridge in the fall of 1977, this was the only way vehicular crossing of... More
