“Great on bike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

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.

winding, narrow road, careful at pull-overs...would recommend to anyone wanting good views of the bridge.

“A Must Do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.

“Scenic Drive into the Past”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

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 the gorge for many miles. The drive winds down the side of the gorge with lots of places to stop, many with NPS interpretive signs; to take in views of the river, whitewater rafters, the gorge and the bridge high above. At the bottom, one crosses the New River on an older bridge, which is shared with the still active railroad, then winds back up out of the gorge through the forest. Before beginning your journey, stop by the Visitor Center and get a copy of the free CD that narrates the scenic trip, providing historical and cultural insights (or download it ahead of time from the NPS website) along with other information regarding the road and New River area. This is a very worthwhile drive if one has the time; about 45 minutes without stops but I would allow at least 90 minutes for stops including one to walk across the old bridge at the bottom of the gorge just above the river.
