An easy-going and beautiful jaunt along the river.

Description

This easy, riverside trail provides great views of the New River and passes through several abandoned New River Gorge mining towns. Rush Run, Red Ash, and Brooklyn were all once bustling communities located along this abandoned railroad line. The first mile, along the Cunnard - Southside Connector, from Cunard River Access is open to motorized vehicles.
