Spring brings the beginning of the rafting and kayaking mason on our world-class rivers. Whether you choose a family float trip on the Cheat or a challenging whitewater adven- ture on the Gauley, rafting and kayaking are a great way to see some of the most beautiful parts of West Virginia. If you'd rather stay on dry land, grab a bike and head for the trails. Our varied terrain creates some of the most challenging single-track trails in the nation; but if you'd rather take a lei- surely ride with your young children, head for the flat, paved miles of the Rails-To-Trails system, where you can see the tunnels, bridges and his- tory of the railroad and finish your trip with a world-class meal or a cone of homemade ice cream, Scale sandstone cliffs with the help of an experienced rock climbing guide under the shadow of the New River Gorge Bridge. Take a guided nature hike in one o| our state parks, or camp deep in the backcountry. Everywhere you look in West Virginia, there's bound to be a bird you've never seen, a food you've never tasted or a piece of history you never knew. You can stay in a rustic cabin or a modern lodge just steps away from the fairway of a golf course designed by one of the legends of the game. Log on now to, or call toll-free, 1-800-CALL-WVA.
