GENOA, W.Va. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today joined Congresswoman Carol Miller (R-W.Va.-03) and community leaders for a ribbon cutting event for Rustic Ravines’ new Trailhead Brewing Co. Grill & Bar.

“Rustic Ravines is a great example of a true tourism destination in Southern West Virginia,” Senator Capito said. “Joe Boffo and everyone at Rustic Ravines has worked hard and steadily constructed a camping resort that not only offers wonderful cabins and yurts for overnight stays, but also has room to grow for future development. One of my favorite things to see in places across our state is the growth over time of our local businesses, and today’s ribbon cutting celebration is an example of just that. Congratulations to Rustic Ravines, and I can’t wait to see what’s next!”

“In recent years, tourism has flourished in West Virginia,” Congresswoman Miller said. “The establishment of the New River Gorge as a national park, combined with a pandemic that caused many people to spend more time outside, created a boom in our state’s recreational tourism industry. Resorts like Rustic Ravines have also attracted people looking to experience the natural beauty of our great state. Rustic Ravines truly has something for everyone, and their new Trailhead Brewing Company restaurant is the latest example. I am thrilled to see how Rustic Ravines has grown, and I look forward to watching them continue to thrive in the years to come. Thank you for all you do to bring more visitors, tourism, and commerce to southern West Virginia.”

“Rustic Ravines really appreciates all the support we have received from so many people in the State of West Virginia. A special thanks goes out to the Director of Tourism, Chelsea Ruby, the people of Wayne County, Senator Capito, Senator Manchin, Congresswoman Miller, Wayne County Commissioners, the DOH, and many more. Thanks so much to everyone for their continued support as we continue to expand our footprint here in Genoa, WV with the grand opening of our Trailhead Brewing Co. restaurant this weekend and our NEW Rustic Ravines ATV/RV Park that will be breaking ground soon with 25 RV Sites, a Shower House and a Playground and much, much more!” Joe Boffo, COO of Rustic Ravines, said.

The Trailhead Brewing Co. Grill & Bar will be a part of a multi-purpose facility, replacing the former conference center, with over 2,000 square feet available to rent for nearly any event. This addition follows the construction of Rustic Ravines’ half-mile zipline, which opened in 2019.
