Craig Branch Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This hike not only takes you to a scenic set of falls, it also leads past a historic preserved mine site enhanced with interpretive information. Start on the edge of the New River Gorge, then descend a miners trail, passing a low-flow cascade to find the Kaymoor mine site. See building relics, signage, structures, and the mine itself. An optional spur takes you to the bottom of the gorge to view more history."
