New River Gorge
Take the time to go to the state park, hike to the overlook and then get the map from the park ranger to drive to the base of the falls, cross the bridge and picnic on the southern side of the river.
The national park rangers were friendly and helpful and suggested some great hikes to view the gorge.

I have been on the entire trail in every season of the year and it is always different as nature is always changing.
This is a really nice state park.
Endless Wall Trail Lansing
Easy to follow and well signed (thank you, National Park Service), this is apparently one of the best hikes in the entire country as USA Today once named it the '#1 trail to hike in the USA".
They call it "moderate" but due to the primitive nature of the trail and the difficulty involved in hiking up , I think a real case could be made to call it "strenuous".
