Located within the Gauley River National Recreational Area, Wood's Ferry leads to a popular put-in and take-out site for the Gauley River and is home to the namesake rapid Wood's Ferry, which is the first major rapid along the Lower Gauley Canyon. The road is an easy gravel road, suitable for any vehicle. The road is wide, thus passing oncoming traffic is not a problem. There are two large parking lots and two restrooms/changing areas at the river put-in. There is also a large beach where you can stop, relax, and enjoy watching rafters and kayakers paddle through the rapids.
