How’s this for an outdoor adventure destination: six wildlife management areas, four state forests, eight state parks, two national forests, one national recreation area, and the popular Greenbrier and Gauley rivers? Who needs anything else? You might not need anything else, but if you travel here you get it anyway. Bisecting this region is the wildly popular and beautiful New River Gorge National River. Every imaginable outdoor recreation opportunity exists in this region, except maybe surfing and glacier trekking. And if you have time to wait, say, a few million years, you might be able to do those, too! This eTrail covers 14 waterfalls in this region including Brush Creek Falls, Waterfall on Whiteoak Creek, Indian Branch Falls, Mash Fork Falls, Campbell Falls, Marsh Fork Falls, Black Fork Falls, Brooks Falls, Waterfall on Big Branch, Sandstone Falls, Kates Falls, Glade Creek Falls, Dunloup Creek Falls, and Cathedral Falls.
