The New River Gorge National Park & Preserve was established by Congress in 2020 and has quickly become a popular destination for travel and residency. Articles in Time, Vogue, and USA Today, as well as television coverage by major networks, have accelerated interest in the area globally over the last two years. The park attracts more than two million visitors annually and officials had predicted an increase of more than 20 percent in visitation in its first year. However, the increase appeared to be nearer 70 percent as of October 2022.
As the park continues to develop, backcountry trails are being built into the mountains to the north and south of the retreat. Copies of the 2011 Foundation Plan for the New River Gorge National Park are available through the listing agent.
This property is being sold by the boundary and not by the acre. West Virginia law provides separate ownership titles for surface and mineral rights, and this property is being conveyed as surface only. The property fronts New River Road, a two-lane scenic parkway that becomes a gravel single-lane road as it approaches the property near the Sandstone Falls Visitor Area.
