A River Runs Through It A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. The park encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.

Very wet, but it had been raining a ton. The dog liked the trail. Nice forest, but nothing spectacular.

Beautiful streams and gorgeous views. great short hike.

I hiked this 2.17.18 and it is very easy. The hike only takes an hour or so but with all of the great views, it took me closer to 2.5 hours. Diamond Point is one of the last overlooks and I'd plan on spending some time here. Great view and somewhat larger area where you can stop and have lunch or whatever. Well worth the time. This is a loop but the last 0.5 mile you need to walk down the main road to the parking lot where you parked. I was a bit confused at first and thought that I had gone the wrong way, but it was all good.

Beautiful trail and beautiful views.

December 28th there was a dusting of snow. We brought YakTrax but did not need them. Many beautiful outlooks over the New River Gorge. Trail in excellent condition. Great hike!

Amazing views. You walk along the edge of a cliff the whole time. Endless views the whole trail. Took about less than 3 hours and we stop at every view spot. Easy trail no high inclines

Relatively easy trail with a fair amount of vistas showing the Gorge the whole way. Take the road on the way back for a beautiful pine tree tunnel!

Beautiful views along the trail and the only strenuous part seemed to be the stairs. Great rocks on the way as well even though someone wrote "Bong Rip Cove" on one of them

We loved this trail! A fairly steep combination of slope, stairs, and rocky path takes you down to the first level of Kaymoor. Here you can explore buildings. A very long and winding staircase takes you down to the bottom level where the mining activity occurred. We were pressed for time and didn't go to the bottom. Warning, it is quite a lot of stairs to get down (and back up!) there! Well worth it.

Been here twice. First time with some friends and the second with my mom. Easy trail but still a pretty good hike. Watch out for snakes in the summer!

The view is super pretty. Did not like that to complete the loop you have to walk on the road. Few cool ladders for climbing access.

Pretty steep area at the top of the 800 steps is more interesting than everything at the bottom. The bottoms all fenced off.

Enjoyed the trail. Short, but moderately hard. Keep going to river when trail ends. It's not too much further. Steep climb down and back up from river then the stairs! I slipped about 3 times climbing back up from the river. I would not recommend dogs on this trail due to cliffs and stairs. Waterfall was dry. Great time of year to go, not a lot of traffic. Cool mine ruins. Careful - I got lost for a few minutes because I climbed higher than the ruins, then I could not see them over the rocks. I loved the trail.
