We did not scale the walls but did hike to see the view of the gorge. We were there when it was hot and humid but it was totally worth getting to the top for the lookout points! The parking lot wasn't the biggest but...More

We did the all of the trail. Breathtaking beauty. The ladder part is exciting, but unnecessary for the experience since those views aren’t really worth the effort.

Endless Wall Trail is a wonderful hike that has two routes: you can stay along the top of the ridge and enjoy the beatiful forest and spectacular views of the New River Gorge or you can take the climbers trail and see what it's like...More

This is a fairly easy hike to a great view. There are 2 trail heads. We parked at the first trail head, and the first part of the hike was in the woods. It’s about 1 mile to get to Diamond Point, on a ridge...More

Went on this relatively easy trail with my husband and a six-month-old. We passed quite a few families with younger children. We only hiked to a Diamond Point so we didn’t do the entire trail. The trail is beautiful, with mature trees, a wooden bridge,...More

Hiked this trail with a guide one morning while on vacation. The views from the cliffs were wonderful as we had a clear, sunny day. We also took the ladders down to the bottom of the cliff and hiked the lower area, which was a...More

2.7-mile round trip and pretty flat trail (by Appalachia standards, that is) with beautiful views of the New River from several rocky outcroppings. I suppose those are what give the trail its name. Easy to follow and well signed (thank you, National Park Service), this...More

Really neat to look in the distance and see the wall of rock. This trail is super because you dont have to walk very far to reach Diamond Point and spectacular views. I walked it with my dogs on a Sunday and saw all walks...More

Great views of New River Gorge. Absolutely gorgeous in the fall. Only downfall is that the trails are not very well marked and parking is limited. When we got on the trail we had trouble finding out where the scenic overlooks really were. There are...More

A beautiful hike through lush forests out to incredible views of the gorge. This is one of the most popular hikes in the New River Gorge for a reason. From Diamond Point, you can see the New River cutting through the gorge, the Endless Wall...More

I hike so many trails. I did climd down the ladder and i also saw diamond point. I May have gone two separate directions. Either way it was not a long hike. Views are breathtaking! This was one of my favorite road trips!
