Created in 1988 in accordance to the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, the Bluestone National Scenic River is built to protect a 10.5 mile portion of the Bluestone River located in Mercer and Summers counties in West Virginia. Aside from its ?Outstandingly Remarkable? scenery, the Bluestone National Scenic River is also notable for its history. It has documents of Native American history, from prehistoric times to the 18th century.

Visiting the Bluestone National Scenic River site will prove to be quite challenging to those interested. As it is located in a deep gorge, without any road connecting it to the highways, some hiking may be required. To get to the site itself, visitors will also need to go through the Bluestone State Park first.
