This is the Grandview area of the New River Gorge National River. For many years, it was a West Virginia state park, and many people still call it that. The photo on the left shows the gate. At some point, the state park was annexed to the federal park. Most of it is the same, however. The views from the main overlook are spectacular. Railroad buffs will enjoy seeing the C&O main line (now CSX) on the far side of the river. There is a trail leading through some interesting rock formations next to the overlook.
