The 10-mile trail follows the Bluestone National Scenic River in a 1.000-foot-deep gorge between Pipestem Resort State Park and Bluestone State Park in southern Almost Heaven. The two main points to access the riverside trail are at the southern terminus at Pipestem State Park near Pipestem and at the northern terminus at Bluestone State Park near Hinton. There is also a dirt road where the hamlet of Lilly once stood, where the Little Bluestone River meets the main stem of the river in the heart of the gorge. At Pipestem, you can, in season, ride an aerial tram down to the Bluestone River from the park’s Canyon Rim Center. Or you can descend via the River Trail that begins at the McKeever Lodge. It is 5.25 miles on the orange-blazed trail and requires wading across the river. The River and the Farley Loop trails intersect with the Bluestone Turnpike. The sometimes rugged trail is open to hikers, mountain bikers, horses and, in season, hunters and anglers. Two miles at the north end wind away from the river, but then return to its banks. Some sources say the trail is eight or nine miles long, but the National Park Service generally uses a 10-mile length. Canoeists and kayakers may paddle the stream in spring and early summer when water levels are higher. The Bluestone is a gurgling stream in the spring when water is high and a gentle, slow-moving stream with riffles and pools when the water is low in late summer. The trail is mostly flat and generally follows the river. The trail follows an old riverside road, the Bluestone Turnpike. It was used by troops during the Civil War and was used into the 1940s by local residents. Earlier, an Indian path followed the Bluestone. American Indians called the Bluestone River “Momongosenka” or Big Stone River, supposedly for the rocks in the boulder-strewn lower gorge. The stream got its name from the bluish limestone bed in its upper reaches. It originates at an elevation of 3,500 feet near Bluefield and flows 77 miles north to Bluestone Lake, a reservoir created on the New River near Hinton. The stream joined the federal wild and scenic river system in late 1988. The designation covers 10.5 miles of the stream plus about 4,300 acres of surrounding land. About 1,300 acres of that land lie within Pipestem State Park. The rest, about 3,000 acres between the two state parks, is federally owned and is jointly managed by the National Park Service and the state. One of the big attractions along the Bluestone Turnpike Trail is the ghost town of Lilly. It was one of the first Appalachian settlements in what is now West Virginia in the 1700s, according to the National Park Service.
