New River Gorge National River

Before you is an excellent view of the upper gorge area of New River Gorge National River. This section of the gorge is broad and the river is wide, unlike the steep V-shaped canyon found downstream of Sandstone Falls. As the New River cut its way through this portion of the landscape, it left behind level land along its banks.

This valley has drawn human inhabitants for thousands of years. The earliest people were hunter -gatherers who moved with the seasons on the trail of game animals. Then came the early woodland tribes who cultivated fields and built palisaded villages. This land later became the often shared and sometimes contested hunting grounds of the Shawnee, Cherokee and Iroquois Indians.
