Rend Trail Hike

March 5, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join Community Captain Lynn to hike the Rend Trail.
From U.S. Route 19 north of Beckley, take the Glen-Jean-Thurmond exit. Take an immediate left and go 0.5 miles to Glen Jean. Turn right and follow the signs for Thurmond (WV Route 25). The trailhead is on the left, 5.1 miles down WV Route 25.
See the best of the New River Gorge National Park when you join one of our hikes. Hikes go at a leisurely pace and are led by Community Captains and an NPS Ranger. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy closed-toe shoes. You are welcome to bring walking sticks/hiking poles for assistance and are encouraged to bring your own water and sunscreen. The length of each hike may vary. Please contact us, or find our Facebook event page for each hike for more details.
All hikes are made possible through getting Active In The Park, a partnership between Active SWV and the National Park Service. Get Active in the Park activities are perfect for grand-families, groups with multiple interests, and individuals. All are welcome! Youth are encouraged to attend but must be accompanied by a guardian and the adult must stay on-site during the activity. Get Active in the Park is an innovative partnership between the National Park Service and Active Southern West Virginia. Trained Community Captains deliver free, beginner-level instructional programs to the New River Gorge region. Get Active in the Park empowers our community to see outdoor spaces as a place for health and wellness to take place.
Participants will be asked to sign an online waiver found here.
