After a delicious breakfast at the iconic Cathedral Café in tiny Fayetteville, we drove to the park and visited the visitor center and walking a bit to loosen up. We found the trailhead and descended the .3-mile steep trail which ended 178 steps down to a great overlook area of the New River, the gorge, and the New River Gorge Bridge. Looking far below, I could see the raft takeout area just before the bridge. I have white-water rafted this river three times previously and this was our takeout point.
