The Kaymoor Miners' trail (located on Kaymoor Road a few miles from Fayetteville, WV in the New River Gorge national recreation area) is a very strenuous hike from the gorge rim level down to the New River. The first part of the hike (1/3 mile...More

Beautiful hike, extremely hard if you at not used to a massive hike, mainly uphill. Just wish they had some kind of really cool attraction at the bottom. Still worth it though.

As I understand it this trail is closed until repairs can be made. There are two entrances. Not only did local tourism officials not know of the closing, the sign for one entrance didn't say the other entrance was closed as well. Bummer.

This is an excellent hike for someone who wants to see the outdoors and have an excellent workout too. History lovers paradise. Need to be in good physical condition to attempt this.

This was awesome. My friend and I chose it to see the old mining buildings and because, mileage wise, it was an easy trail. We went in the later afternoon in January (around 35 degrees), but didn't bundle up too much, just jacket and gloves...More
