New River Gorge Park & Preserve, West VirginiaLearn More
It’s time to dig your heels into our country’s newest national park, New River Gorge National Park and Preserve, which turned one year old in December 2021. No surprise given its name, but this Appalachian Mountains retreat in Southern West Virginia has world-class rafting, rock climbing, mountain biking, stand-up paddleboarding, and fishing on its enchanting 70,000 acres of public lands—all best appreciated with an overnight stay in either cabins or campgrounds at Adventures on the Gorge, which doubles as a whitewater rafting outfitter. Don’t miss a visit to the world’s third-longest single span arch bridge here. Measuring in at 3,030 feet and towering 876 feet above the New River Gorge (making it the second-highest vehicular bridge in the world), the bridge’s underlying 1.25-mile catwalk can be trekked from end-to-end if your knees can handle it.
