Hico is an unincorporated community located in Fayette County, West Virginia in the southeastern part of the state. Hico is situated at the junction of U.S. Route 19 and U.S. Route 60, just seven miles northeast of Fayetteville. Hico is near the New River Gorge National Park, which offers incredible recreational opportunities. Some of the things to do include hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting, rock climbing, fishing, kayaking and canoeing, wildlife viewing and bird watching - the list is almost endless. One of the major attractions in the area is the New River Gorge Bridge. At 3,030 feet in length and a height of 876 feet, it's the highest vehicular bridge in the Americas, and the second-highest in the world. The bridge is the centerpiece of Fayette Countys Bridge Day, during which the bridge is closed to vehicular traffic. The festival includes demonstrations of rappelling, ascending and BASE jumping, and is held every October on the third Saturday. Bungee jumping has been banned from Bridge Day since 1993. The town of Hico is small, but nearby Fayetteville offers a variety of unique shops, good restaurants and other businesses for both locals and visitors.

Hico Weather & Climate

South-Central West Virginia is dominated by a humid continental climate, due to its geographical location in the higher elevations. Summers are very warm and humid and winters are cold and snowy. The humid continental climate is marked by variable weather patterns and a large seasonal temperature variance. Summers are often warm and humid with frequent thunderstorms and winters can be very cold with frequent snowfall and persistent snow cover. The seasonal temperature variance is typically 25-35C (45-63F) and increases as one moves further inland. Places with at least four months of average daily temperatures above 10C (50F) and at least one month below 0 C (32F) or -3 C (26F) depending on source, and which do not meet the criteria for an arid or semiarid climate, are classified as humid continental.
