New Hiking Challenge to Start This Weekend
New River Gorge National River is offering a 100-mile hiking challenge to celebrate the National Park Service’s centennial. To complete the challenge, visitors must hike at least 100 miles on trails in New River Gorge National River and Bluestone National Scenic River in 2016.
You can register for the challenge online by sending your name and email address to NewRiverGorge100MileChallenge@nps.gov. The park will officially kick off the challenge on Jan. 2 with a hike of about 3 miles on the Grandview Rim Trail.
