Trail Description

Weston and Gauley Bridge Turnpike Trail

Weston and Gauley Bridge Turnpike Trail is a 10 mile trail located in Braxton County, West Virginia within the Gauley River National Recreation Area.

The Gauley River National Recreation Area, located near Summersville, West Virginia, protects a 25-mile (40 km) portion of the Gauley River and a 5½-mile (9 km) segment of the Meadow River in southern West Virginia. Little of the park is accessible via roads; one must travel via the river. At the upstream end of the park is the Summersville Dam, where upper Gauley River trips put in for their adventure. For the first time since the Gauley River NRA was established, the park now owns mid-river access where upper Gauley trips may take off the river and lower Gauley trips may put on. The river accesses recently acquired are the Masons Branch river access and the new Woods Ferry river access.
