Chart Your Float

The Upper Cheat River Water Trail is tucked away in the Allegheny Mountains of northern West Virginia. The river’s prime location puts a scenic escape within a day’s reach for much of the eastern United States. The rugged topography that surrounds the Cheat, however, provides opportunities for solitude – helping you feel as far away as your mind can imagine.
