I recently visited the New River Gorge area in West Virginia. Some friends and I visited the ACE Adventure Resort, which is near Thurmond, WV. This resort has everything! You can go white water rafting on the Gauley or the New River, kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, biking, mountain climbing, mud obstacle course, and climbing tower. We've been here a couple times and we always have a blast.
The beginning of the trail started out nicely. One of the first things you do is cross this cute little brook flowing over the path. The trail continues down hill along the side of the mountain. As we continued to walk down hill we got closer and closer to a creek running parallel at the bottom of the hillside we were on. There were lots of spider webs across the path, making me think this wasn't a high traffic trail. The trail was not blazed very well either, but it was obvious to keep going straight.
