The Cheat River in Preston County, was once dead from acid mine run off and named one of America's most endangered rivers. Through the efforts of several conservation groups including The Nature Conservancy and The Friends of the Cheat, and mother nature herself, this river and surrounding canyon has made a remarkable recovery.

Whitewater enthusiasts, hunters, fishermen, hikers, and anyone who enjoys the outdoors will not be disappointed exploring the 8 mile canyon right outside of Morgantown.
