Glade Springs, SE of Beckley, West Virginia, is a gated resort community named for the springs that feed Glade Creek on the east flank of Shady Spring Mountain. Glade includes private residential communities for full-time residences, including many homesites along the fairways on its two championship golf courses. The resort also includes two fine restaurants, a spa, convention facilities, a heated pool, and tennis courts. Largely wooded, Glade Springs is criss-crossed with hiking and horsebacking trails, some of which tie into trails through the Glade Creek Canyon, part of the New River Gorge National River.
