Climbing

With more than 1,400 established climbing areas ranging from 30 feet to 120 feet in height, the park is one of America’s most popular climbing spots.

West Virginia’s biggest one-day festival, on the third Saturday in October, where you can traverse the longest, single-span steel arch bridge in the western hemisphere.
