David Sibray visits rim of New River Gorge, centerpiece of national park

244

Defined by its cliff-lined rim, the spectacular New River Gorge is the centerpiece of the New River Gorge National River in southern West Virginia, one of three areas of national parkland in the Appalachian Mountains there.

David Sibray surveys the gorge from Beauty Mountain, a cliff that affords a good vantage of the gorge near Beauty, West Virginia, where its rim is most defined.

The New River Gorge is among the most popular destinations for rock climbing and whitewater rafting in the eastern U.S., and is an increasingly popular destination for hiking, biking, and fishing.
