The Spectacular View at Grandview



Grandview is not far from Beckley, West Virginia. I hadn't heard of it until recently although I have been to Hawk's Nest State Park which also overlooks the New River Gorge. Remembering that Hawk's Nest has spectacular views, I eagerly looked up Grandview and put it on my list of places to see.

Grandview used to be a West Virginia State Park but in 1990 it was adopted by the National Park Service as part of the New River Gorge National River. It is a day use area (no camping) featuring trails and spectacular views of the gorge.




This overlook is only a short walk from the Visitors Center. I was delighted to hear a train below us. It stopped at a small town in the gorge.

  2. What spectacular views! I wonder if that train track is the one that the Amtrak train takes from Charlottesville, Va. to Chicago. If so... and I think it is... I saw that scenery from the train more than once. Just gorgeous.
