Getting to New River Gorge National Park

Driving to New River Gorge

There are two main roads that visitors use to access the park. US-19 connects Beckley and Hico, crossing the famous New River Gorge Bridge on the way. Interstate 64 crosses through the park down in the Sandstone region. It’s important not to rely on GPS once off the main roads, as it sometimes guides you to rough dirt roads and other remote areas.

If you’d like to plot directions from your location use the interactive map below. The marker shows the location of the Canyon Rim Visitor Center in New River Gorge National Park.

Official Park Map

Below is the official park map provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). Note that while this map is useful for general navigation around the park, if you plan to do any hiking, you should really have a proper New River Gorge Trail Map.
