Rush Run Creek to ACE Beach Enjoy a relaxing ride from the Mountaintop Event Area down River Road to ACE Beach and the old coal town of Erskine. The first part of the ride will feature an exciting downhill trail section that will link us onto the River Road. From the rim of the New River Gorge, you will descend 800 feet in elevation along a scenic gravel road following along Rush Run Creek. Once you arrive at the river level you can explore the ruins of Erskine, an old coal-mining town. Trek just a little bit further down an abandoned rail grade to ACE Beach where you can park right by the edge of the water for a gorgeous photo opportunity. From here you will travel back up Rush Run Creek to an exciting overlook at the top of the gorge. A short trail section will get you back to ACE Adventure Resort and the main event area.
The further down this trail you advance the more challenging and rugged it becomes! True off-roading at its best!
