Ep. 276: New River Gorge | National Park West Virginia hiking camping history

Avatar admin | October 12, 2022

Southern West Virginia's New River Gorge is perhaps best known for this bridge that conveys US Route 19 across the New River, one of the highest vehicular bridges in the world. The bridge, however, is just a fraction of the intrigue of the New River Gorge, which just became a U.S. National Park in 2020. The park is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities. It's home to some of the country's best whitewater rafting, and is also one of the most popular climbing areas on the East Coast. It's also home to historic timbering and coal mining operations that helped fuel American industry, which we'll explore throughout this entire Grand Adventure. In addition to hiking to a coal mine while camping at Lake Stephens County Park near Beckley, we'll also visit some beautifully historic architecture at The Greenbrier.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.

We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter months, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so while you'll occasionally find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. We've now transitioned from "long-timing" for six months a year, to living and traveling in our RV full-time.

We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
