Class II-III Bluestone River, WV

Eads Mill to Bluestone State Park

The lower 10 miles of the designated segment flow through an 800-foot deep gorge and offer warmwater fishing, whitewater boating when water level permits, and hiking along the river on a trail between Bluestone and Pipestem State Parks.


Spectacular views of the river gorge may be seen from overlooks at Pipestem. A major portion of the lands are managed by the state to provide hunting opportunities; wild turkey is the featured species.
