Another HUGELY Wild and Wonderful outfitter of West Virginia, we present ACE Adventure Resort. You know the saying, “pictures don’t do justice”? Yeah, it’s like that. Check out this 30 second clip to sum it all up. There’s really no way to capture all that is ACE, but we’ll do our best!
In the heart of over 1500 acres of New River Gorge playland, ACE has so much fun to be had. Go rock climbing, mountain biking, paintballing, horseback riding or just plain old hiking. There’s even mud obstacle courses! Plenty of fresh air, fun times and bonfires are waiting to soothe that travel itch and satisfy any level of thrill-seeker.
The main attraction are the rivers and for over 35 years, ACE has guided folks away from their reality and into some world-class whitewater rafting on the New and Gauley Rivers:
Here’s where HYSIDE comes in.
“Ace has purchased rafts from Richard since the “Sunrunner” days. The Hyside raft is the most durable and maintenance free raft we have used and we have tried every brand. We have a fleet of more than 250 craft. This year we are finally retiring rafts that were built in 1992. That is 23 – 24 years of use on the New River Gorge and Gauley River….Class 4-5 whitewater. We use Hyside rafts on the Upper G down to 450 Cfs and we use them on the New River with flows that exceed 33,000 cfs. Our guides love them because they always bring you home without incident. We use 12’, 14’ and 16’ Pro series. Hyside has always been open to work with our special requests and design changes. It has been an honor to have such a vendor relationship. The newer lighter rafts use the same awesome durable fabric but has taken the unnecessary weight out of each raft: eg. Rubstrake, grommets, neo wear patches, etc. The durability is the same but now they handle even better. The competition is scrambling to follow Hyside.”
ACE Adventure Resort
As you can see, ACE’s resort is tremendously vast, full of everything to do both on and off the New River and the Gauley. It’s not easy cramming 1500 acres, 9 zip lines, 4 sections of river for white water rafting, 3 lakes for kayaking and swimming, miles of trails for mountain biking and hiking, and all the fun that goes with it into this one page, but we gave it our best shot. If this doesn’t get your heart going, you’d better check your pulse.
And now, the newest attraction for ACE…CONCERTS! (You thought we were finished, ha??)
