Discover the Birthplace of Rivers

Welcome to the Birthplace of Rivers.  The Greenbrier, Gauley, Elk, Cherry, Cranberry, Tygart Valley, Williams, and Shavers Fork of the Cheat rivers all begin in the pristine mountains of West Virginia. The only surface water that enters the county does so as precipitation; all other water flows out.  It's a place of crystal clear streams, native brook trout, roaring waterfalls, and an authentic kind of people. 

We invite you to experience the rich history, eloquent beauty, and warm hospitality of Pocahontas County. Find a 941 square mile outdoor recreation paradise where you can fish, hike, hunt, bicycle, camp, motorcycle tour, ski, and renew your connections with family and friends. If it's outdoor fun you've been looking for - then look no further. Call us today for a FREE 40 page visitor guide or click the Request Information link to the right.  We'll get it right out to you so you can begin planning an unforgettable getaway.
