Hinton Aerial.jpg


Established in 1872, this little river town sits along the banks of the mighty New River. Hinton is the southern gateway community to the New River Gorge National Park & Preserve. The confluence of three rivers join forces here making it an ideal location for water sports and activities. It's close proximity to Pipestem Resort and Bluestone State Parks creates a location that is perfect for adventure, and the small town atmosphere is just the icing on the cake.


The Historic District

The historic district was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, covering approximately 200 buildings within a twenty-four block area. Here you'll find eclectic architecture dating back to the late 1800's, quaint shops, local eateries, and a welcoming community. 


Surrounded by rivers and parks, Hinton provides ample opportunity for outdoor adventures. Take a kayak down the New, a river tube down the Greenbrier, or a paddle board on the lake. Spend time exploring the miles of hiking trails in the national and state parks or zip through the trees on Pipestem Peaks zipline course.
