Top Five Reasons to Visit the New River Gorge in Autumn

The New River Gorge Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) Race 
On Sunday, Sept. 17 at noon at Fayette Station on the New River three races take place during the this incredible event: Kids Race, Attainment Race & Down River Race. In addition, the event organizers offer free instruction and equipment demos to spectators with no experience or registration is needed. The Downriver Race is truly something to see! The participants go through a class 3 rapid ON STANDUP PADDLEBOARDS!

Gauley Season 
For seven spectacular weekends every fall the Gauley River transforms into a whitewater superhighway that attracts adventure seekers from all over the world. You can feel the excitement in the air. Even if you aren’t quite ready to tackle the beast of the east, just visiting Summersville Lake to see the damn release that creates the world-class white water is fun. Tentative 2017 River Release Dates: September 8, 9, 10, 11; 15, 16, 17, 18; 22, 23, 24, 25; 29, 30 October 1, 2; 6, 7, 8; 14, 15; 21 (Bridge Day) & 22

The Weather
Autumn weather is perfect for hiking. A cool breeze on the Endless Wall Trail is topped only by the gorgous display of fall foliage. The forest canopy becomes less dense allowing beautiful rays of sunshine to break through the towering trees. You can hear the crunch of leaves under your boots, smell the scent of fall wildflowers and feel the crispness in the air. There are over 100 miles of trails in the New River Gorge. More than enough to keep you busy all fall.

Fall Food
We can’t wait to see what our friends at The Station come up with for their fall farm-to-table menu. We look forward to washing down their deliciousness with a Oktoberfest, the fall brew from Bridge Brew Works. And speaking of beer, we are also looking forward to relaxing at Arrowhead Bike Farm. Can you image a better way to spend an autumn evening than around a campfire with a brat and a beer?

Bridge Day
West Virginia’s biggest one day festival is jaw dropping; your jaw will drop open when you see the Bridge Jam Music Festival, the Fayetteville Chili Cookoff and Taste of Bridge Day are all fun events worth visiting.
skydivers jump off the 800’ tall New River Gorge Bridge. West Virginia’s largest one day festival is now the centerpiece of other great events that take place in the Gorge during the third weekend of October.
