Greenland Gap

Greenland Gap in West Virginia is a breathtaking water gap carved by the North Fork of Patterson Creek through New Creek Mountain.

Spanning 250 acres, this scenic preserve is distinguished by towering 800-foot Oriskany Sandstone cliffs and unique flora, such as the Canada yew and red elderberry, typically found in higher terrains. Notable features include the nearby Patterson Creek Falls and a historical site of a Civil War skirmish in 1863, where Union soldiers bravely defended against a larger Confederate force, symbolizing the sacrifices made during the war.
