SURROUNDING AREA

  • HINTON is the southern gateway to New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. The town has a large historic district, railroad museum, antique shops, and restaurants. After crossing the bridge at Hinton you will begin driving alongside the New River down River Road. There are great riverside vistas on this favorite route for a casual drive along the waterfront.   Boaters, motorcyclists, fishermen and vehicle cruises on the roadway and the river are a common sight.  Nestled in the foothills of the Allegheny mountains lies a place where the rivers flow and the eagles soar. A place where small town charm is around every corner and outdoor recreation is the norm. A place where porch sitting is earned after days spent hiking, biking, boating, and fishing. It is a place that remembers its past and looks towards the future.
  • NEW RIVER GORGE NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVE is known for its 53 miles of free-flowing whitewater that cuts through sandstone cliffs towering as high as 1,000 feet in the air. It boasts class III through V rapids and plenty of boulders to keep even the most experienced rafters engaged. The upper part of the river is calmer and more welcoming to new rafters. The area also boasts more than 1,500 climbing routes, as well as a 12.8-mile system of mountain bike trails built by the Boy Scouts. The New River Gorge itself is about an hour’s drive from Charleston, West Virginia. It encompasses about 70,000 acres marked with trailheads and visitor centers, and another 65,000 for backcountry hunting. White-tailed deer, river otters, and bald eagles are among the wildlife regularly spotted here. New River Gorge National Park and Preserve (U.S. National Park Service) (nps.gov)
  • BLUESTONE DAMspans the New River, forming Bluestone Lake, the third largest lake in West Virginia. With a 2,040-acre surface area, the lake provides boaters, water skiers, and fishermen with great recreational opportunities. The State of West Virginia operates Bluestone State Park with cabin rentals, picnicking and camping facilities. Also, a swimming pool, gift shop, two boat ramps, and a marina are operated for the convenience of the visitors. Camping opportunities are also available at the state’s Bluestone Lake Wildlife Management Area.
  • THE GREENBRIER RIVER The lower Greenbrier River possesses the excitement of life on one of the nation’s great wild rivers. The focus of a vast outdoor-recreation destination, it flows untamed out of the lofty Alleghenies, attracting anglers, paddlers, and naturalists from across the globe.

At 172 miles long, the Greenbrier drains over 1.5 million acres and is the longest undammed river left in the Eastern United States. It is primarily used for recreational pursuits and well known for its fishing, canoeing, kayaking and floating opportunities. Its upper reaches flow through the Monongahela National Forest, and it is paralleled for 77 miles by the Greenbrier River Trail, a rail trail which runs between the communities of Cass and North Caldwell.

It has always been a valuable water route, with the majority of the important cities in the watershed being established river ports. The river gives the receiving waters of the New River an estimated 30% of its water volume. Over three-fourths of the watershed is an extensive karstic (cavern system), which supports fine trout fishing, cave exploration and recreation. Many important festivals and public events are held along the river throughout the watershed.

The Greenbrier is formed at Durbin in northern Pocahontas County by the confluence of the East Fork Greenbrier River and the West Fork Greenbrier River, both of which are short streams rising at elevations exceeding 3,300 feet and flowing for their entire lengths in northern Pocahontas County. From Durbin the Greenbrier flows generally south-southwest through Pocahontas, Greenbrier and Summers Counties, past several communities including Cass, Marlinton, Hillsboro, Ronceverte, Fort Spring, Alderson, and Hinton, where it flows into the New River.

Willow Wood Country Club and Golf Coarse

The 9-hole “Willow Wood” course at the Willow Wood Country Club facility in Hinton, West Virginia features 2,965 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 36. The course rating is 33.4 and it has a slope rating of 113. Willow Wood golf course opened in 1920 and is open to the public.

Mouth of Indian Creek “Shanklin’s Ferry” and “Cedar Branch” 

New River at Bluestone Wildlife Management Area

Access to these points is one of the best areas for access to the New River and the backwaters of Bluestone Lake for Fly fishing.  Small outboards, kayak and small pontoon boating is some of the best here from this area of the park service.  Located just 15 minutes south of the Doe Hollow Property at Bluestone Wildlife Management area.  Mouth of Indian Creek is also a favorite for trout fishermen.  This abundantly stocked trout stream comes to its headwaters here in the designated Mouth of Indian Creek Park service lands.

From Shanklin’s Ferry to the river, right Indian Creek (four miles) access point, more overlooked bass water exists. Once again, anglers should be aware that some major rapids pock this part of the New. The Class II Anderson Falls comes at the two-mile mark, while the Class II to III Harvey Falls looms several more miles downstream (and after the aptly named Whale Rock), and at the end is the Class II Harmons Rapids.

Harvey Falls is by far the most difficult to run of the trio, but it can be portaged by way of an islet on its right side. Rapids aside, this float features a number of islands of varying size and marvelous rocky cover, often in the form of underwater ledges. These areas are where you should spend much of your angling time.

Adding to the appeal is that the Bluestone Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) surrounds the river, ensuring that the splendid mountainside scenery will always remain that way. Float-fishermen who want to combine this and the previous getaway may want to consider camping out in the WMA or spending the night at Bluestone State Park. For more information, dial 800-CALL-WVA.

Nearby and across the river you will find Bull Falls and Bertha also offering superior fishing that includes catfish, pike, and trophy bass along with other species.  These out of the way areas of the park system are easily accessible from Route 20 toward Pipestem or by boat from the Cedar Branch, Shanklin’s Ferry or Mouth of Indian Creek access points of the New River. Bertha Recreation area is also accessible by traveling Wolf Creek Road that passed through the community of Buck and onto the mountain roads that take you to Bertha Recreational Area on the New River.  Experienced boating and water skills recommended or guided trips if planning to cross the river at these locations or long journeys downstream.  Short trips and typical kayaking are for the novice boater are at your fingertips.

At Hinton you will find shopping along with three rivers and a lake: New River, Mouth of The Greenbrier River, Bluestone River and Bluestone Lake. Also located in Hinton–Wild Water Express Water Park with two very tall waterslides, in-ground pool and kiddie pool. A large in-ground pool at Bluestone State Park and the Indoor Pool at Pipestem Resort.  Swimmers also enjoy the Greenbrier River.  Float Trips are a favorite for many.  Enjoying the breathtaking natural scenery is an adventure in itself.

Local Summers County Festivals are a popular event. Appropriately named, the Water Festival is held every summer, along with Railroad Days, Festival of the River Music, John Henry Festival (Talcott) and more.  Historic Hinton offers walking tours, an amphitheater, cafes, museums, boutiques, fine dining, a movie theatre and a cultural center all among turn of the century architecture. Several streets in Hinton are paved with the original brick from bygone days.  Driving over the bricks while passing the Iconic Churches, Victorians, Romanesque, Greek Revival, Georgian and other classic architecture is like riding through a living museum.

Bring your fishing pole and your boat. If you forget them no worries –  One of the largest Outdoor Outfitters Supply Stores in the area is also located in Hinton.
