“Sandstone walls provide a striking backdrop for this hike along the New River Gorge.”— Hunter R
Family Friendly The Endless Wall Trail's mild grades, short length, and exciting views make for a wonderful hike with children. Be sure to keep them close, as the trail can drop off steeply along the gorge rim.
This hike was recently awarded the USA Today Reader's Choice Award for Best National Park Hike, so get out and experience it for yourself!
For families with children, be sure to keep them close, as steep drop-offs are present in various spots along the trail.
Bypassing the climbing access points, hike along the rim to the Diamond Point Overlook for stunning views of the New River Gorge. Continue along the trail, peering through the trees to the New River Gorge below, before eventually reaching the eastern parking area and the end of the trail. Hikers can either turn around at this point and follow the trail back to the western parking area, or hike 0.5 miles back to their car along the road.
