Rowlesburg is a railroad town that has turned to tourism in a big way. All along Route 72, which follows the river for 30 miles, fishermen line the banks. Route 72 is a designated National Byway, and for good reason. The road follows the most beautiful, untamed rivers in North America. One observer noted on a recent visit, "Rowlesburg is still a magical place."

The Rowlesburg Community Park is a multi-acre riverside public space with two baseball fields, a lighted walking path, basketball court, tennis court, picnic pavilions and a summer concession stand serving great food. Because of the deep valley, bicycle road riders find a paradise of paved mountain roads to test their mettle. Cheat Mountain rises from 1,400 feet in Rowlesburg to 3,000 feet just 10 miles east.
